Ellen Compernolle"The Weinberg grant made both the in-person interviews and the informed survey design possible. For me to be the principal investigator, to be able to have my own research questions—explore them, design a survey questionnaire to test those hypotheses, and then analyze the data to see whether they're true or not—not many graduate students have that chance."

[Project Abstract]

Eva L. Mueller New Directions in Economics and Demography Fund

"To Support Research And Training In Demography And Economics"

Eva Mueller, Early career
Professor Eva Mueller

Eva Mueller had a long and productive career as a faculty member in the Department of Economics and the Population Studies Center. Early in her career she contributed significantly to the study of consumer behavior in the United States and later turned to issues of economic demography in low income countries.

Purpose: The Fund was established to support research and training in demography and economics, especially projects focusing on low income countries and projects dealing with the socioeconomic position of women and investments in children's health and human capital.

Eligibility: PSC Research Faculty, Research Affiliates, and overseas PhD alumni are eligible to apply. Overseas collaborators not affiliated with the Center may be included for support.

Application Procedure: Small Grant RFAs are generally issued in December. To streamline the process of applying for PSC's six endowment funds, we use a single Small Grants Application Form for all funds. The PSC Advisory Committee evaluates all proposed activities and determines the most appropriate funding source for those accepted. For additional information, you can consult a list of funded activities in prior years.
