The Washington Center for Equitable Growth seeks to deepen understanding of how inequality affects economic growth and stability. To do so, they support research investigating the various channels through which economic inequality, in all its forms, may or may not impact economic growth and stability. Equitable Growth promotes efforts to increase diversity in the economics profession and across the social sciences. The Foundation recognizes the importance of diverse perspectives in broadening and deepening research on inequality and growth. Equitable Growth supports research inquiry using many different types of evidence, relying on a variety of methodological approaches and cutting across academic disciplines. This request for proposals is organized around four channels of growth: Macroeconomics, Human Capital & Well-being, Market Structure, and The Labor Market.
For additional information regarding these channels, see: https://equitablegrowth.org/research-paper/2023-request-for-proposals/
Equitable Growth is willing to fund a wide range of activities for Doctoral/postdoctoral grants, including stipend support, data purchase, travel and costs associated with conducting experiments, or participating in professional conferences.
