Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

Industry Studies


The Foundation is no longer accepting proposals in the Industry Studies program.  Interested scholars may apply for research grants under other Foundation programs such as Economic Institutions, Behavior and Performance.  Before submitting a letter of inquiry, please review the Foundation's guidelines on what we do not fund.

Many industry studies activities previously sponsored by the Foundation, such as the Industry Studies Dissertation Awards, are being continued under the auspices of the Industry Studies Association(ISA).  For information about the ISA and its programs, please refer to the association's Web site,
