CSSRR Economics/Sociology–October 18, 2012

Stanford University Center on Poverty and Inequality Request for Proposals: “The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality (CPI), a National Poverty Research Center funded by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, seeks to support research that will expand our knowledge of key trends in poverty, inequality, and mobility among Hispanics in the United States. The CPI anticipates funding 5 proposals with a maximum award of $25,000 each. Priority will be given to “new scholars” (i.e., scholars who have received their Ph.D. no earlier than 2005) who will then work individually or collaboratively with one of the CPI’s Research Groups to carry out the proposed research project. More advanced scholars are also encouraged to apply. The principal investigators for the funded grants will participate in three meetings for the purpose of discussing, presenting, and improving their research. These meetings will be attended by top scholars in the field who will provide advice and assistance to the grantees as their research projects unfold.

The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality (CPI) is dedicated to monitoring trends in poverty and inequality, explaining what’s driving those trends, and developing science-based policies on poverty and inequality. The Director of the Center is David B. Grusky of Stanford University. The CPI recently received funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to expand its research covering poverty, inequality, and mobility among Hispanics. We have formed five new research groups (RGs) that cover the following topics: (a) key trends in Hispanic poverty, inequality, and social service use, (b) generational differences in the social standing of Hispanics, (c) the social mobility of Hispanics, (d) the effects of immigration policy on labor market and other outcomes among Hispanic populations, and (e) the health of Hispanics. The new research groups will be led by a team of distinguished scholars (Douglas Massey, David Grusky, Tomas Jiminez, Jody Agius Vallejo, Brian Cadena, Roberto Gonzales, Fernando Riosmena) and joined by postdoctoral fellows appointed by the Center, scholars who are winners of the Center’s grant competitions, undergraduates at grantee institutions, and Stanford University graduate and undergraduate research fellows.

The proposed research should use new or existing data to analyze key trends related to one of the five domains listed above. The types of research that will be supported within each of the domains are described in more detail at:

www.stanford.edu…

(and applicants are strongly encouraged to read these research descriptions before formulating their proposals). The main questions of interest, as detailed in the website descriptions, are as follows:

What are the key trends among Hispanic populations in poverty, income inequality, and social service use?

How does the socioeconomic standing of Hispanic immigrants vary across first, second, and third generations?

How much economic and social mobility is there among different Hispanic populations and what are the main sources. Grant proposals must include plans to incorporate undergraduates in the research, and funding for undergraduate of such mobility?

What is the effect of immigration enforcement policy on poverty and labor force outcomes of Hispanics? What forces are influencing the changing and sometimes deteriorating health of Hispanic populations? The proposed projects may rely on either qualitative or quantitative data, or a combination of the two.

The main mechanism for interaction between RG leaders and grantees is three meetings during the grant year. The first meeting will be an intensive two-day workshop at Stanford University in mid-February, 2013 with the two directors and the five RG leaders. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and correct problems with the research plans, present preliminary research results, and otherwise ensure that the research is underway and headed in a fruitful direction.  The second meeting, which will occur in a single intensive day (May 28, 2013), will take place in Washington, D.C. in advance of the Welfare Evaluation and Research Conference (WREC) on May 29-31, 2013. (We expect that some grantees will choose to attend the WREC conference after our meeting.) At this pre-conference meeting, we will require preliminary results to be presented, although it will still be early enough for major revisions to occur. The final meeting will take place in Washington, D.C. in the late summer. At this meeting, grantees will present their research, which will at this point be group members between the three meetings to garner further feedback and advice. It is also possible that CPI graduate students or postdoctoral students can assist with some of the research (under arrangements that will be made at the first two-day workshop at Stanford University).

Terms

1. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent by December 31, 2012. Stanford University faculty and postdoctoral fellows are ineligible for funding.

2. Grants should begin on or before January 15, 2013, and end no later than September 30th, 2013. A final report will be due to the CPI no later than October 30, 2013. No-cost extensions are not allowed.

3. The grant will be awarded either as a personal services contract to one or more researchers or through the applicant’s home institution. Due to the limited funds available, indirect costs will be limited to no more than 10 percent of the grant amount (if made through the applicant’s home institution).

4. Funds may only cover reasonable research expenses up to $25,000. These may include summer salary, research and project assistance, consultant payments, costs of purchasing data or software, and research-related travel. Applicants should include expenses in their budget to cover travel for a two-day conference at Stanford University for the RG meetings in February, 2013 and a one-day conference in Washington, D.C. in late September when final grant projects will be presented. The CPI will cover expenses in conjunction with attendance at the Welfare Research and Evaluation Conference (WREC) pre-conference meeting in late May, 2013.

5. Grant proposals must include plans to incorporate undergraduates in the research, and funding for undergraduate assistance, as needed, should be reflected in the budget.

6. Recipients must submit two short progress reports to the CPI, one by April 15th, 2013, and the second by July 15th, 2013.

Selection Criteria

The project’s two co-directors, David Grusky and Douglas Massey, and the RG leaders (Tomas Jiminez, Jody Agius Vallejo, Brian Cadena, Roberto Gonzales, Fernando Riosmena) will evaluate the proposals in collaboration with affiliated scholars and staff from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Proposals will be evaluated according to:

*  The quality and appropriateness of the research design, methodology, and data

*  The proposed study’s feasibility

*  The proposed study’s policy significance

*  How the study contributes to the principal investigator’s career development

The CPI will not fund a research project that has also been funded in the current year by a similar grant from the University of California-Davis or University of Wisconsin-Madison poverty centers. We expect researchers to notify us if, while their proposal is under review, their project receives additional funding from any source.

Application Instructions

Applicants should submit their proposal electronically to:

inequality@stanford.edu….

Proposals must be received by 5 PM Pacific Standard Time on December 15, 2012. The proposal should be submitted as a single file and contain the following components in the order listed below:

1. A cover sheet that includes the title of the proposed research project, the investigator name(s), affiliation(s), and contact information, and a principal investigator (PI) for correspondence purposes.

2. A brief narrative (3-4 single-spaced pages, excluding figures and references) delineating: (a) the research question and the study’s aims, (b) a review of the literature informing the study, (c) the research design, methods, and data sources, (d) the likely policy significance of the proposed research, and (e) how undergraduates will be engaged in the research process.

3. An itemized budget and budget narrative explaining each line item.

4. A project timeline that is consistent with the conditions outlined in the “Terms” section above. This timeline should list the milestones necessary to complete the study in the allotted time.

5. C.V. for each investigator.

Please note that Human Subjects review approval (or a waiver in the case of secondary data analysis) is required before any funding may be disbursed.

Demography funding opportunities: Applications are invited for up to 10 new appointments (pre-doc, post-doc to senior scientist) as part of launching the new “Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital” which is being made possible by the substantial research funding associated with the Wittgenstein Prize (the highest Austrian science prize – also called the “Austro Nobel”) which was recently won by Wolfgang Lutz as the first social scientist in the history of this award. The new centre will rest on three pillars (the Vienna Institute of Demography, the World Population Program of IIASA and the WU – Vienna University of Economics) and aims at merging the existing strengths in the Vienna area in the fields of demography, human capital formation and analysis of the returns to education in order to establish a globally leading centre in this field. The main goal of the Centre is to improve the analytical toolbox and the empirical data base for our understanding of the role of human capital (people and their changing structure by age, gender, place of residence, level of education, health status and cognitive skills) vis a vis financial and natural capital in our strive for sustainable development. The focus of the new Centre is global and the working language is English. Anybody with academic credentials and/or serious aspirations in this field is encouraged to apply. Appointments will be made through one of the three “pillar” institutions (doctoral students will receive their degree from the WU-Vienna). The deadline for a first round of recruiting is 25 August 2010. First interviews will be held during the European Population Conference (1-3 September in Vienna).

American Educational Research Association Funding Opportunity: “AERA Institute on Statistical Analysis for Education Policy Call for Applications” (deadline is Jan. 6, 2010). “With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and assistance from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the AERA Grants Program announces its AERA Institute on Statistical Analysis for Education Policy. The Institute’s goal is to help develop a critical mass of U.S. educational researchers using NCES and NSF data sets for basic, policy, and applied research. Hands-on training is provided in the use of large-scale national data sets, with special emphasis on using these data sets for policy-related research in education. The Institute has three components: (1) instruction in the use of large-scale federal data sets such as those supported by NCES and NSF, with focus on a different data set each year; (2) methodological training appropriate to the analysis of large-scale, often longitudinal, data sets pertinent to educational policy research; and (3) discussion of current issues of policy and practice for which the focal data set is relevant. AERA members, agency staff, and outside experts jointly provide this training. Underrepresented minority researchers are strongly encouraged to apply.

Description:

In 2010 the Institute will focus on education policy issues, such as mathematics achievement, that can be addressed using data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 1998-99 (ECLS-K). The Institute will address issues such as selection bias, modeling achievement growth over time, and the problems and pitfalls of the ECLS-K data set. The session will provide hands-on instruction to help participants develop knowledge and skills in the use of the ECLS-K data for education policy research and application.

Participant Grants:

A select group of scholars will be chosen to participate in the Institute. Those selected for participation will receive support covering the Institute’s fees, transportation to Washington, DC, housing, and per diem for the dates of the Institute.

Dates and Location:

May 20-22, 2010, in Washington, DC.
