Eva L. Mueller New Directions in Economics and Demography Fund
"To Support Research And Training In Demography And Economics"
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: To streamline the process of applying for PSC's multiple endowment funds, we use a single Small Grants Application Form for all funds. The application form is made available when award schedules are announced each year. The PSC Advisory Committee evaluates all proposed activities and determines the most appropriate funding source for those accepted. Applicants may gain insight on the kinds of activities supported by browsing a list of awards made in prior years, by fund.
