Extramural Research Funding Program

IRP conducts an annual Extramural Research Funding Program to support timely secondary analyses of data to address emerging policy-relevant research questions and provide seed funding for work that is likely to lead to high-impact research.

Proposals are invited from Ph.D.-holding scholars at all career stages, from postdoctoral fellows to senior faculty, and from all disciplines. Total cost per grant may not exceed $25,000.

Calls for proposals are released in late November with an early January deadline for research that may begin as early as the following spring. See a list of funded projects.
