The PREDOC Research Assistant award program provides awards to faculty, researchers, post-doctoral scholars, and doctoral candidates at institutions of higher education and research to hire RA support for a project in the quantitative social sciences. The program supports the hiring and mentoring of undergraduate RAs at institutions outside their home institution.

The PREDOC RA award program is open to research proposals for projects in the quantitative social sciences and welcomes proposals that:

  • include clear deliverables that the undergraduate RA will meaningfully contribute to
  • integrate mentorship in the RA experience
  • will deepen the RA’s understanding of research in the quantitative social sciences.

The next call for proposals for the PREDOC RA award open in Fall 2022. Please send question about the PREDOC RA award program to Michelle Skinner.

In Fall 2021, PREDOC provided $40,000 in funding to support 10 projects ranging from financing in the digital area to the influence of SEC litigation upon analyst. Please see below to learn more about each project.
