Family Research Scholars

The Family Research Scholars program seeks to build lasting and productive connections among researchers of varying disciplines. Our hope is that each faculty member realizes the possibility and reality of a long-lasting career in family research. Since 2003, The Center for Research on Families has offered the groundbreaking Family Research Scholars Program, a year-long interdisciplinary faculty seminar that provides a carefully selected group of UMass Amherst faculty the opportunities for peer mentorship, and national expert consultation to prepare a large grant proposal in support of their research.
