Pathways to Research and Doctoral Careers (PREDOC) is launching a Call for Proposals for our annual RA Matching program.  PREDOC will grant awards of up to $4,000 to faculty, researchers, post-doctoral scholars, and doctoral candidates at institutions of higher education and research. Proposals are encouraged from the full range of quantitative social science research fields, including, but not limited to, accounting, behavioral science, economics, econometrics and statistics, finance, management and operations, marketing, and organizational behavior. PREDOC hopes with this initiative to provide RA opportunities to undergraduates who otherwise would not be able to find an RAship.  The PI’s willingness and ability to mentor the RA and encourage them toward a research career is an important criterion in our evaluation of proposals.
