Data-Driven Social Science

What is DDSS?

DDSS supports research at the technical and methodological forefront of quantitative inquiry in the social sciences. We emphasize innovation, impact, tool-creation, and multidisciplinary community-building. 

To facilitate state-of-the-art social science research at Princeton, we offer funding opportunities, technical consultations, advanced workshops and training, interdisciplinary events, and research software engineering expertise.

About Us

Funding Proposals

We offer two types of funding for innovative quantitative research, depending on the scope and technical requirements of the project. We invite large-scale grant proposals twice a year. Small-scale grant applications are considered on a rolling basis.
