CORNELL UNIVERSITY: Institute for Social Sciences - Collaborative Projects

Social Sciences


The Institute for the Social Sciences (ISS) promotes cutting-edge collaborative social science research connecting faculty across disciplinary and institutional boundaries.  Collaborative Projects have a three year term. The goals of ISS Collaborative Projects are twofold: research and engagement. The ISS supports social science research that is eligible for funding from social science directorates of the major federal funding agencies and other funding organizations. Social science research also includes social scientific research eligible for funding by programs jointly administered by a social science directorate and another federal program.  

Collaborative projects are to foster dialogue and engagement within Cornell across institutional boundaries of department, college, and discipline. This also includes enhancing communication among scholars located in different units across campus, but who share the same disciplinary backgrounds (e.g., psychology, economics, or sociology).

Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss their plans with the relevant parties (i.e., chairs and Deans) in advance of proposal submission. Each proposal may submit a budget requesting up to $150,000 for project activities.

Deadline: Team leader submits pre-proposal by February 4, 2019.
