The Scholars Strategy Network seeks to improve public policy and strengthen democracy by organizing academic scholars. Founded as a voluntary membership organization in 2011, the network now has over 700 member researchers based at 189 institutions in 43 states. The Scholars Strategy Network helps researchers communicate without jargon to inform public debates. Member scholars share their findings and collaborate with journalists, civic organizations, and policymakers in Washington and in the communities where they live. A general operating grant will help scholars use research to speak out for evidence-based policy, communicate the impacts of major policy shifts, and defend democracy.
