National Science Fundation

Economics Programme

The National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences solicits proposals under its economics programme. The programme funds research designed to improve the understanding of the processes and institutions of the US economy and of the world system of which it is a part. Support is given to both empirical and theoretical analysis as well as methods for rigourous research on economic behaviour. Research may be in almost every area of economics, including econometrics, economic history, environmental economics, finance, industrial organisation, international economics, labour economics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics, and public finance. Proposals may be for individual or multi-investigator research projects, conferences, workshops, symposia, experimental research, data collection and dissemination or computer equipment and other instrumentation. Interdisciplinary research that strengthens links between economics and other social and behavioural sciences as well as mathematics and statistics is supported. A high priority is given to interdisciplinary research. PD 98-1320.
