January 19, 2017

The Russell Sage Foundation is pleased to announce the appointment of sixteen leading social scientists as Visiting Scholars for the 2017-2018 academic year. During their time in residence, they will pursue research and writing projects that reflect the Foundation's commitment to strengthening the social sciences and conducting research "for the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States."

The program, now in its thirty-first year, provides a unique opportunity for visiting scholars to pursue their research and writing while in residence at RSF, and is an important part of the Foundation's effort to analyze and understand the complex and shifting nature of social, political, and economic life.
