Call for Concept Proposals: Action Research Projects
Deadline: August 15, 2013
Amount : $10,000 - $20,000
The Sociological Initiatives Foundation is dedicated to the belief that
research and action are inseparable.
We invite concept proposals for projects that link an explicit research
design to a concrete social action strategy.
Projects should also have clear social change goals.
SIF has funded projects in the areas of civic participation, community
organizing, crime and law, education, health, housing, immigration,
labor organizing, literacy and linguistics
Some examples of desired applicants are:
· academic-community partnerships
· advocacy or community groups that conduct research that can withstand
challenge in academic and policy arenas
· academics that organize or link to a constituency through their research
A limited number of concept applicants will be invited to submit full
proposals in the fall of 2013. Applicants chosen for funding will
receive 60% of the funds immediately in January of 2014. They will
receive the remaining 40% after 11 months, contingent upon submitting
evidence that the project’s 11 month milestones have been met.
Our analysis of past grant recipients has shown that projects typically
take two years, so applicants should think in terms of such a timeline.
The Foundation will also track projects and may choose to invite select
grant recipients to apply for a second round of funding to enhance a
project showing significant accomplishments in the previous two years.
Complete guidelines, information on past funded projects, and the
on-line concept application are available at http://www.sifoundation.org
