The Partnership for Clean Competition has updated its policies regarding social science applications to the micro-grant program. From February 2021 on, social science grants should go through the full application process, as opposed to using the micro-grant process.

This decision was carefully considered and implemented in order to ensure fair consideration for social science grants.

During the full grant review process, the PCC brings in social science experts to review appropriate grants. However, the same expertise is not available to our micro-grant reviewers. In order to ensure social science grants get full and fair consideration, we encourage applicants to submit during one of our three review cycles.

Pre-Application Deadlines for the Grant Cycles:

  • March 1st
  • July 1st
  • November 1st
