The Washington Center for Equitable Growth considers proposals that investigate: the consequences of economic inequality across wages, benefits, incomes, wealth and job quality as well as group dimensions of inequality including race, ethnicity and gender; the causes of inequality to the extent that understanding these causal pathways will help us identify and understand key channels through which economic inequality may affect growth and stability; and the ways in which public policies affect the relationship between inequality and growth in four core areas of interest, including: macroeconomics; human capital and the labor market; innovation; and institutions. Academic grants are typically in the $25,000 to $100,000 range over 1 to 3 years. Doctoral/Postdoctoral grants are funded at $15,000 over 1 year.
