Since 2001, TESS has been supporting general population experiments on behalf of investigators throughout the social sciences. Faculty and graduate students from the social sciences and related fields (such as law and public health) propose survey-based experiments. For successful proposals, TESS pays standard data collection and data dissemination costs. This strategy enables researchers to concentrate more on the production of ideas and less on acquiring the means to pay the often high fixed costs of conducting experiments with representative national samples.

Special Competition for Young Investigators

The Special Competition for Young Investigators is limited to graduate students and scholars who are no more than 3 years post-Ph.D. or post-MD residency. While proposals can be co-authored, all co-authors must be early-career (no more than 3 years post-Ph.D. or post-MD residency; i.e., degree must have been received, or residency completed, in 2021 or later). Individuals can submit only one solo or co-authored submission for the special competition.
