The Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy (ISERP) announces an opportunity for one-year research Seed Grants. The main goal of this project is to offer social science researchers the chance to undertake major research programs that may require initial results or proof of concept to attract external funding. The ISERP seed grant program places a priority on high-risk, high-return research, including work that develops new theories, identifies new areas of methodological innovation, or that bridges different substantive domains. Projects may be domestic, international, or comparative.
