The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is an independent, international, nonproﬁt organization founded in 1923. It fosters innovative research, nurtures new generations of social scientists, deepens how inquiry is practiced within and across disciplines, and mobilizes necessary knowledge on important public issues.
The SSRC is guided by the belief that justice, prosperity, and democracy all require better understanding of complex social, cultural, economic, and political processes. SSRC works with practitioners, policymakers, and academic researchers in the social sciences, related professions, and the humanities and natural sciences. We build interdisciplinary and international networks, working with partners around the world to link research to practice and policy, strengthen individual and institutional capacities for learning, and enhance public access to information.
The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is a nonprofit organization that aims to foster innovative research in the social sciences. SSRC especially supports international study and research. SSRC offers many scholarships, fellowships, and research grants for graduate students interested in study and research abroad.
