Grants of up to $500,000 to be awarded for collaborative social science research projects on energy and distributional equity, led by early- and mid-career scholars

The Energy and Environment program at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation supports research, training, networking, and dissemination efforts to inform the societal transition toward low-carbon energy systems in the United States by investigating economic, environmental, technological, and distributional issues. As one of its newly defined topic areas of interest, the Sloan Foundation’s Energy and Environment program looks to advance timely, catalytic, rigorous, interdisciplinary social science research projects that examine questions related to energy insecurity, distributional equity, and just transitions in the United States, particularly those that introduce new scholars from various disciplines to these lines of inquiry.

Therefore, the Sloan Foundation is currently soliciting Letters of Inquiry for collaborative social science research projects led by early- and mid-career scholars examining critical and under-explored questions related to issues of energy insecurity, distributional equity, and just energy system transitions in the United States.

Submissions are due no later than Monday, February 1, 2021 by 5:00pm Eastern.
