About us

Founded in 1923, the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is an independent, nongovernmental, not-for-profit, international association devoted to the advancement of interdisciplinary research in the social sciences. It does this through a wide variety of interdisciplinary workshops and conferences, fellowships and grants, summer training institutes, scholarly exchanges, research consortia and publications.

In seeking to advance the quality, value, and effectiveness of social science research, the SSRC encourages scholars in separate disciplines - anthropologists, economists, historians, political scientists, psychologists, sociologists, statisticians, and others - to work together on important topical, conceptual, and methodological issues that can benefit from interdisciplinary collaboration. Natural scientists, geographers, linguists, and scholars in the humanities also participate in many of the Council's activities.
