Grants to USA researchers for studies related to the impact of changing economies for less-skilled and moderately skilled workers. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Proposals are invited for investigator-initiated research that will broaden understanding of the role of changes in employer practices, the nature of the labor market and public policies on the employment, earnings, and the quality of jobs of workers.
The Foundation is especially interested in proposals that address important questions about the interplay of market and non-market forces in shaping the wellbeing of workers, today and in the future.
Examples of the kinds of topics and questions that are of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Changing economies, changing families and policy responses (or lack thereof)
- The economics of productivity and the role of managerial practices in improving job quality
- Causes and consequences of job polarization
- Effects of long-term unemployment and strategies to prevent long-term disadvantage
