Pilot Grants Program

The CA Labor Laboratory Pilot Grants Program serves to advance the goals of the Center by increasing the number and diversity of researchers focusing in these areas and providing opportunities to explore emerging issues as they arise. These small pilot grants are open to academic researchers and the broader community. The 2023-2024 application guidelines are available here.

The first pilot funding competition was held in early 2023, with funding to start this Fall. We received 23 applications from researchers in a variety of academic institutions and non-profit organizations, and funded eight projects.
