Social scientists at UMass have raised millions in research funding across disciplinary boundaries, creating new knowledge and research centers in the process. ISSR helps you identify funding opportunities for your research, and the Funding Fridays series to help you develop your research proposals.
Grant-writing workshops, write-shops, and resources for social science researchers. You bring the big ideas, ISSR brings the space, support and snacks.
