The Russell Sage Foundation's program on Behavioral Economics supports innovative research that uses behavioral insights from psychology and other social sciences to examine and improve social and living conditions in the United States. We seek investigator-initiated research proposals that will broaden our understanding of the social, economic and political consequences of real-life behaviors and decisions that deviate from the neoclassical economic standards of rationality. Funding is primarily available for analyses of original qualitative and quantitative data sources, and novel uses of existing sources of data. The Foundation is particularly interested in research that uses behavioral insights to examine new questions about inequality and mobility, labor economics and public finance, parenting and child development, and racial and ethnic bias.
