Sponsored research projects are funded by external (Federal and Non-Federal) funding sources as well as funding support available from internal sources at the Department of Economics.
Economics researchers have been successful in obtaining support from a variety of funding sources, with many examples listed here. Please search these sponsors, and any others, to identify open and available funding opportunities.
The Foundations of Human Behavior Initiative (FHB) aims to drive transformative insights about the psychological, social, economic, political, and biological mechanisms that influence human behavior – and then translate that knowledge into cost-effective, scalable interventions that improve human well-being around the world.
Select Funding Source
Your first task is to identify a sponsor or funding source with an open opportunity or available funding announcement.
Receive Advising Information and Prepare Your Proposal
Please notify Jason Fleming as soon as you have identified funding you would like to pursue. Each sponsor will have their own unique requirements for submitting a research grant proposal, and Jason will work with you to navigate Sponsor-specific guidelines and proposal application components, as well as applicable University policies.
Application Review Process
Please be aware of this policy issued by the Office for Sponsored Programs (OSP), which requires the complete and final proposal be received by OSP at least five (5) full business days prior to the sponsor's due date.
All sponsored research proposals are reviewed and approved initially by the department’s Manager for Sponsored Research, secondly, by FAS Research Administration Services, and finally by the University Office for Sponsored Programs (OSP). Final submission will be completed by OSP.
