Do you want to know more about the research that has been funded by IFREE’s Small Grants?
The IFREE Small Grants Program provides funding of up to $10,000 for research projects that are consistent with IFREE’s Mission Statement and IFREE’s “principles of belief.” All proposals undergo a peer-review process. Funding decisions are based on scientific-merit, likelihood of success, expected benefits and broader impacts, and are subject to the availability of funds.
Investigators are encouraged to carefully read the “Inspiration Anchoring IFREE” page. IFREE does not support experiments that focus on individual decision making, including but not limited to, risk and time preferences, individual investment or portfolio allocation, elicitation of individual willingness to pay/accept, ability of individuals to perform tasks or make decisions under stress or cognitive load.
The Small Grants Program is open to anyone affiliated with a research institution, regardless of citizenship or location of the institution. Funding preference will be given to proposals that include one or more investigators who have participated in an IFREE workshop, either as a teacher or a student, and/or received pre or post-doctoral support from IFREE.
Funds may be requested only for expenses directly related to a research project, including, but not limited to, funding for laboratory subject incentives, research costs and software development. Funds may not be used for salary support for investigators or travel to conferences. IFREE does support travel that is necessary to conduct the research. When writing the proposal, it is important to justify all expenses. IFREE does not pay overhead or indirect cost recovery on grants.
