Elevating Research

Equitable Growth is committed to supporting rigorous research that advances what we know about equitable growth. We do that by funding original research from established academics and promising early career researchers.

The Washington Center for Equitable Growth is a non-profit research and grantmaking organization dedicated to advancing evidence-based ideas and policies that promote strong, stable, and broad-based economic growth.

The Equitable Growth Network

Our academic network includes a growing group of scholars working to understand how we can build a strong, stable, and equitable economy. We engage with scholars up and down the career ladder through our grant program, as well as through conferences, seminars, and by elevating their research for both an academic and a policy audience. Explore the ways you can connect with our network or take advantage of the support we offer.
