Great data resource for political communication - TESS (Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences)

TESS (Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences) is a great resource for faculty and graduate students to conduct experimental research with a generalizable population of adults for free. Yes, you read correctly, FOR FREE!

Funded by the National Science Foundation, you can submit brief five page proposals to conduct a study, they are peer-reviewed, and if approved, you can field the study at no cost to you. Great way to replicate experiments with adults, collect a larger data set of respondents with more heterogeneity of traits/individual differences, etc.

You can find more infomation about TESS at and how to submit proposals at

In addition, TESS has a special competition for young investigators - i.e. graduate students - that is meant to allow graduate students to field large scale studies. You can find more information at

If you have a any questions about TESS, please feel free to email me as I am an Associate PI for the program and reviewer of proposals at
