As part of its Just Tech project, the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is requesting ideas from across the social sciences and related fields that discuss the dangers, opportunities and challenges posed by public health surveillance stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic. The SSRC explicitly support initiatives that challenge the role that the public and private sectors should play in reducing or exacerbating the health crisis, the consequences of which are already unevenly distributed.
Eligibility and Criteria
The Just Tech program invites proposals for Rapid-Response Grants from researchers—based at both academic and nonacademic institutions—who hold a PhD in any social science discipline or related interdisciplinary field.
The grants offer up to six months of support toward research-related expenses. These include, but are not limited to, access to datasets, archives, and relevant publications; costs related to conducting online research of various kinds; and research assistance.
Applications are welcome from any country around the world.
Awards will range from USD $5,000 to $10,000, with larger amounts directed to projects committed to research partnerships grounded in principles of ethical collaboration and equity, composed of partners who might not otherwise work together.
Deadline: August 31st.
