Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International faculty and researchers affiliated with qualified institutions for research on fairness in digital media. Eligible uses of funding include research costs, travel, overhead, and graduate or post-graduate students’ employment/tuition.

Meta is pleased to invite faculty to respond to this call for research proposals pertaining to the topics below.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Definitions of fairness:
    • Evaluating which existing notions of fairness are appropriate for large-scale two-sided markets
    • Proposing new definitions that capture novel aspects of fairness
    • Studying the mutual satisfiability of different notions of fairness
  2. Decentralized algorithms:
    • Developing matching algorithms for large-scale markets with fairness objectives
    • Providing provable fairness guarantees for new or existing algorithms in these settings
    • Proving lower bounds or impossibility results for fairness objectives over classes of algorithms
  3. Analysis of equilibria:
    • Studying outcomes in settings where participants have agency and maximize a personal objective
    • Providing provable fairness guarantees for different notions of equilibria
    • Quantifying lower bounds for fairness when participants have agency
  4. Empirical work:
    • Studying notions of fairness in real large-scale two-sided markets on digital platforms
    • Evaluating outcomes of existing or novel algorithms in real large-scale two-sided markets

While all of these can be studied for generic notions of large-scale two-sided markets (with or without money), they may also be tailored to specific application areas such as content creation markets, eCommerce markets, advertising markets, dating markets, blood donation markets, job listing markets, and others.
