Is There Gender Bias in Federal Grant Programs? Research Brief
Hosek, Susan D.
RAND Corporation
Based on analysis of three federal agency databases and two researcher surveys, we did not find gender differences in federal grant funding outcomes, with two exceptions. First, we found a gender gap in the amount of funding on average that females receive relative to their male counterparts at NIH, although important caveats are associated with that finding. Second, we found a gender gap in subsequent application rates. Suggestions for future data gathering and analysis are discussed. (Contains 2 figures.) [This research brief describes work documented in "Gender Differences in Major Federal External Grant Programs," by Susan D. Hosek, Amy G. Cox, Bonnie Ghosh-Dastidar, Aaron Kofner, Nishal Ramphal, Jon Scott, and Sandra H. Berry.]
