ISSR Scholars Program


The Institute for Social Science Research Scholars Program provides social science faculty from across the University a course release for an interdisciplinary seminar that meets regularly through the academic year to develop individual research grant proposals. The seminar includes ongoing presentations and discussion of faculty research proposals, advice on grant writing and submission, information about grant agencies, and opportunities to meet nationally recognized scholars for consultation. Social science faculty of all ranks and schools are encouraged to apply, regardless of their external funding history.
