Social Science Research Council: Women in Economics Research Consortium

The CSWEP-SSRC Women in Economics Research Consortium invites proposals to rigorously evaluate potentially scalable interventions designed to increase the numbers and success of women in the economics profession. They particularly encourage proposals that involve collaborations with implementing partners on college and university campuses.

The SSRC also encourages replications of previously evaluated interventions, especially replications that evaluate the scalability and external validity of previously evaluated interventions. Projects may begin as early as September 2023 and have timelines of up to 18 months. (No-cost extensions will be available to enable longer periods of observation). Budgets should not exceed $200,000 in total costs, with indirect costs not exceeding a total of 10% of direct costs.

Proposals will be reviewed by external reviewers chosen in consultation with CSWEP leadership. Proposals will be reviewed and award decisions will be made on a rolling basis; applicants are encouraged to submit proposals earlier rather than later.
