Fellowships to USA scholars for research in the fields of social inequality, behavioral economics, the future of work, and race, ethnicity, and immigration. Priority will be given to scholars that are completing work that is already in progress. The 2-3 month fellowships provide workspace in a Manhattan-based office and do not include financial support.

Visiting Researchers are provided with an office at the Foundation, computers, and software, and library access. Applicants who reside outside of the greater New York City area may be provided with a partially-subsidized apartment near RSF, if available.
