Project Grants

The Foundation's grants are restricted to support for social science research within our announced programs. Our website, reports, and other publications provide descriptions of each of these programs and examples of the research we have supported in the past. The Foundation typically makes grants up to $200,000. We provide support primarily for analyzing data and writing up results. We are particularly interested in innovative projects that collect or analyze new data to illuminate issues that are highly relevant to the Foundation's program goals.

Instructions for applying for research grants from the Russell Sage Foundation can be found here.
