Time-sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences

Jamie Druckman writes:

Time-sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences (TESS) is an NSF-funded initiative. Investigators propose survey experiments to be fielded using a nationally representative Internet platform via NORC’s AmeriSpeak® Panel (see http:/ for more information). In an effort to enable younger scholars to field larger-scale studies than what TESS normally conducts, we are pleased to announce a Special Competition for Young Investigators. While anyone can submit at any time through TESS’s regular proposal mechanism, this Special Competition is limited to graduate students and individuals who are who are no more than 3 years post-PhD. Winning projects will be allowed to be fielded at a size up to twice the usual budget as a regular TESS study. For more specifics on the special competition, see:  We will begin accepting proposals for the Special Competition on August 1, 2017, and the deadline is October 1, 2017.  Full details about the competition are available at   This page includes information about what is required of proposals and how to submit, and should be reviewed by anyone entering the competition.
