Pipeline Grants Competition

RSF has launched a new pipeline grants competition for early-career researchers in collaboration with the Economic Mobility and Opportunity program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The competition seeks to promote diversity in the social sciences broadly, including racial, ethnic, gender, disciplinary, institutional, and geographic diversity. Early-career faculty who have not previously received support from RSF in the form of a Trustee or Presidential research grant or a visiting fellowship from RSF are eligible to apply.

Deadline:  November 1, 2023

Eligibility Requirements

Only faculty who have not previously received a research grant or a visiting fellowship from RSF are eligible to apply. RSF expects to fund 24 one-year projects by assistant and associate professors. Proposals are due on November 4, 2020, for funding starting June 1, 2021. Tenure-track assistant professors can apply for grants of up to $30,000. RSF will pair assistant professors with mentors working in the same field and provide an honorarium for the mentors.

Associate professors who have been in the rank for less than seven years can apply for grants of up to $50,000. Full professors, associate professors in that rank for more than seven years, and those who have previously received RSF funding are eligible to be co-PI’s but cannot receive funding. Grants can be used for investigator salary, course buyouts, research assistance, data access, data collection, conference travel, and other research costs on a case by case basis.
