Nelson Saldaña"I am truly grateful for receiving the PSC Alumni Graduate Student Support Fund Award because it gave me critical support to do research as a pre-doc -- including funds to purchase research tools that are normally hard to procure -- as well as boosting my confidence to pursue future innovative work within demography. While I originally intended to use the research for one publication, the research conducted thus far could potentially arise in multiple papers. The PSC Alumni Award has not only given me the opportunity to start a first project, it has also provided me with a research agenda for a lifelong career."

[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: 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.
