The Institute for New Economic Thinking and The Centre for International
Governance Innovation are calling for new research proposals in areas
of vital importance to the field of economics for the Fall 2011 grants

In our first two rounds of research grants, awarded in Fall 2010 and Spring 2011, INET and CIGI awarded more than 50 grants totaling over $12 million. To find out more about our previous grant awards please visit our grants overview page.

The third round of research grants will focus on these six areas:

  1. Financial and Real Economic Linkages
  2. Global Interdependencies and Macroeconomic Policies
  3. Models of Economic Development, Innovation and Growth
  4. Sustainable Economics
  5. Economic History
  6. History of Economic Thought

We are especially interested in receiving proposals from outside the United States and Europe, and from scholars outside economics in related fields such as political science, sociology, history and the physical sciences. Grant awards typically range from $25,000 to $250,000.

The grant application and procedural guidelines can be found here.

The initial proposals for grants are due by September 15, 2011, and the process will culminate in mid-December 2011 with the announcement of grant awards.
