One of the oldest American foundations, the Russell Sage Foundation was established by Margaret Olivia Sage in 1907 for "the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States." The foundation dedicates itself exclusively to strengthening the methods, data, and theoretical core of the social sciences as a means of diagnosing social problems and improving social policies.
To advance this mission, the foundation is accepting Letters of Inquiry for its Russell Sage Foundation/Carnegie Corporation Initiative on Immigration and Immigrant Integration. Grants of up to $150,000 over one or two years will be awarded in support of innovative research on the effects of race, citizenship, legal status and politics, political culture and public policy on outcomes for immigrants and for the native-born of different racial and ethnic groups and generations.
Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than May 24. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by August 15, 2018.
