Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences

This is not a grant in the traditional sense. Instead, TESS (which receives NSF funding) accepts proposals and will run surveys and experiments on behalf of selected PIs.

Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowships

Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowships provide a framework for established academics with an international reputation to pursue their research at the EUI.

Fellowships last for up to ten months in one of the EUI's four Departments which in turn invite fellows to participate in departmental activities (seminars, workshops, colloquia, etc.).

Please be sure to apply for the correct deadline, as not every discipline accepts applications for both annual deadlines.

Doctoral Dissertation Research in DRMS: Does participation in project decision-making affect how intended beneficiaries report project outcomes?

Improving access to social services such as safe water and sanitation, education and health care depends on being able to learn what approaches work better than others, when and why. Household surveys of intended beneficiaries are an essential source of information about program effectiveness. Recent evidence, however, suggests that these survey data may be unreliable because program beneficiaries may change the way they report their behavior as a result of the program.

Science of Science - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants

The Science of Science: Discovery, Communication, and Impact (SOS:DCI) program is designed to understand the scientific research enterprise and increase the public value of scientific activity. The program pursues this goal by supporting basic research in three fundamental areas:

How to increase the rate of socially beneficial discovery;
How to improve science communication outcomes; and
How to expand the societal benefits of scientific activity.
