Jamie Rowen (FRS '17-'18), Selected for Prestigious CAREER Award from Nation Science Foundation

Jamie Rowen (FRS '17-'18), assistant professor of political science and legal studies, has been selected for one of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) most prestigious awards — the CAREER Award, the highest recognition NSF gives to early-career faculty. The five-year, $500,000 grant will support Rowen’s research into Veteran’s Treatment Courts (VTCs) – a program that emerged as one response to a growing concern that veterans are disproportionately represented in the criminal justice system, and have unique, unmet, needs.
