Announcing Sustainability and Social Science Seed Grants Program Awards

ISSR is pleased to announce three research grant awards totaling $25,000 in its inaugural round of funding through the Sustainability and Social Science Seed Grant Program. 

Co-funded by ISSR and the School of Earth and Sustainability, the winning research teams leverage a broad range of disciplinary perspectives and expertise at UMass and beyond, including the Departments of Anthropology, Environmental Conservation, Geosciences, Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning, Legal Studies and Political Science, Resource Economics, Sociology, and the School of Public Policy, as well as a host of governmental, nongovernmental and community organizations working at the human-environment interface. This degree of inter-disciplinary collaboration exemplifies ISSR's commitment to spanning disciplinary boundaries to open new ways of conceptualizing and studying the defining issues of our times.
