NSF Economics Program Grants

The Economics program supports research designed to improve the understanding of the processes and institutions of the U.S. economy and of the world system of which it is a part. The program welcomes proposals for individual or multi-investigator research projects, and also funds interdisciplinary research that strengthens links among economics and the other social and behavioral sciences as well as mathematics and statistics. Deadlines: January 18, 2018 (and January 18 annually thereafter) and August 20, 2018 (and August 18 annually thereafter).

The Economics program supports research in almost every area of economics, including econometrics, economic history, environmental economics, finance, industrial organization, international economics, labor economics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics, and public finance. It places a high priority on interdisciplinary research and also supports doctoral dissertation improvement awards, conferences, workshops, symposia, experimental research, data collection and dissemination, computer equipment and other instrumentation, and research experience for undergraduates.
