Funding Opportunity

Institute for New Economic Thinking Grant Program

The Institute awards individual grants for valuable original research that can’t get sponsored elsewhere and funds a series of research programs focused on critical issues that demand sustained work by many people over time.

Grants are awarded primarily to individuals or teams affiliated with academic institutions, think tanks, and other research centers. We are especially interested in funding early stage research and junior research scholars. The Institute calls for applications once a year through an open request for proposals. The process is open to anyone with a big idea that could help move the field of economics, though most awards will go to those working in academia.
