About our Programs

The Washington Center for Equitable Growth seeks to deepen our understanding of how inequality affects economic growth and stability. To do so, we support research investigating the various channels through which economic inequality, in all its forms, impacts economic growth and stability.

Equitable Growth promotes efforts to increase diversity in the economics profession and across the social sciences. We recognize the importance of diverse perspectives in broadening and deepening research on inequality and growth.

This Request for Proposals is open to researchers affiliated with a U.S. college or university. The affiliated university must administer the grant. 

Graduate students are not eligible to apply. However, they can be supported by a grant as a part of the research team. 

Grants awarded in response to this request are expected to fall in the $25,000 to $80,000 range. Slightly larger grants may be considered if the budget is well justified. Grant timelines should be limited to 2 years. 

Equitable Growth is willing to fund a wide range of activities, including researcher salary and benefits, research assistance, data purchase, and costs associated with conducting experiments or research-related travel. Our grants cannot cover indirect overhead. 

Please see the Request for Proposals for more information. Applications are due on Monday, May 20 at 11:59 PM local time.
