$20,000 for Research on Hidden Biases

Some of you may have already heard that the Kapor Foundation is co-sponsoring an exciting new opportunity to gather research about how hidden biases impact our lives and behavior, particularly around perceptions of fairness and access.

Along with our sibling organization, the Level Playing Field Institute, The Hidden Bias Research Prize will be awarded to two scholars who have conducted rigorous research with compelling findings to contribute significantly to the field of hidden bias research.In Winter 2010, the Level Playing Field Institute will award two $20,000 Prizes as part of this competition – one for research on K-12 or institutions of higher education and one for research on workplace programs.

The deadline is rushing up soon,  so check out the call for papers at: www.lpfi.org/news/HiddenBiasResearchPrize.html!
