Multidisciplinary Funding Opportunities from the Russell Sage Foundation

The Russell Sage Foundation has two opportunities to fund multidisciplinary research.

Race, Ethnicity, & Immigration: The primary goal of this program is to find ways in which researchers from different social science traditions studying issues of race, ethnicity, and immigration may complement one another in productive and innovative ways. Multi-disciplinary perspectives and methods that both strengthen the data, theory, and methods of social science research and foster an understanding of how we might better achieve the American ideals of a pluralist society are encouraged.

The Russell Sage Foundation’s (RSF) Integrating Biology and Social Science Knowledge (BioSS) initiative will support innovative social science research on social and economic outcomes that improves our understanding of the interactive mechanisms by which environmental influences affect biological mechanisms, and vice versa.

Faculty members interested in pursuing these opportunities should contact the IU Office of the Vice President’s (VPR) Foundation Relations team, who have particular expertise in engaging with foundations. Letters of intent are due May 24, 2018. Email Josh Moore ( for more information.
