Since 2012, academic scholars have conducted independent research through the Department of Labor Scholars Program. This grant program supports research that culminates in a final report which summarizes the design, analysis, and findings, and provides a public-use data file, if applicable.

Grantees received up to $50,000 to conduct independent research relevant to DOL policies and programs. Explore the final reports and documentation from each cohort.

Please note, these reports were produced outside of CEO's independent evaluation and research process. See the individual reports for more information on how these products were developed.
