    The goal of Health Policy Research Scholars is to create a large cadre of diverse doctoral students from a wide variety of research focused disciplines—students whose research, connections, and leadership will inform and influence policy toward a Culture of Health. Specifically, we aim to recruit doctoral students from a variety of field/disciplines (e.g., urban planning, political science, economics, ethnography, education, social work, sociology) who are training to be researchers. For the 2017 cohort, the Health Policy Research Scholars program will enroll up to 50 scholars interested in learning to translate their research into health policy and who are from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds. Examples of eligible individuals include, but are not limited to, first-generation college graduates, individuals from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, individuals from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in doctoral programs, and individuals with disabilities. Scholars in this program which is designed to enhance and enrich the doctoral program—will complete the Health Policy Research Scholars program concurrently with their doctoral program.Over the course of the four- to five-year program, scholars will:
    • Receive an annual stipend of $30,000 for up to four years
    • Establish and strengthen professional ties to leaders in
    • public health, policy, equity, and many other fields and professions
    • Continue working from their home institution and applying new
    • learnings in real time
    • Receive dissertation support and mentoring
    • Be eligible for an additional dissertation grant of up to $10,000

  • Russell Sage Foundation
    December 1, 2017
    The Russell Sage Foundation offers small awards to support high quality research in behavioral economics and to encourage young investigators (Ph.D. students and recent graduates) to enter this developing field. There are no limitations on the disciplinary background of the principal investigator, and the proposed research may address any topic in behavioral economics. However, projects must contribute to the Foundation's mission to improve the social and living conditions in the U.S. Appropriate projects will demonstrate explicit use of psychological concepts in the motivation of the research design and the preparation of the results. Experimental projects which do not have substantial behavioral content (such as market experiments testing neoclassical ideas) or substantial economic content (such as psychology experiments with no economic choices or strategic or market implications) will not be funded.
