Research Funding

ISPS invites proposals for important and well-crafted field experiments in the social sciences and related policy issues. Field experiments are fully-randomized research designs in which observations found in a naturalistic setting – voters, patients, welfare recipients, community organizations, government entities, and the like – are assigned to treatment and control conditions (see more here).
