Call for Proposals: Small Grants for Research Using Data from CDS and TAS

Submission deadline: 15 April 2020

PSID announces a small grant competition that will fund 8 to 12 grants in the range of $8,000–$12,000 each to conduct research with data from the PSID Child Development Supplement (CDS) and/or the PSID Transition into Adulthood Supplement (TAS). Funded projects will generate papers that will be presented, along with other invited posters and presentations, at the 2021 PSID User Conference, tentatively scheduled for 16–17 September 2021.

The goals of this competition are to encourage scholars to use CDS or TAS data to generate scientific and policy-relevant findings and to facilitate future research and collaborations including proposal submissions to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
