The Institute for Social Research (ISR) is seeking candidates for numerous fellowships and research awards for graduate students. The initiative is part of an ongoing effort to train the Next Generation of empirical social scientists by providing exceptional research opportunities. Last year, 56 awards were given to emerging scholars across campus and around the world. The awards totaled more than $250,000. More money will be awarded this year with the addition of the Jerald and Virginia Bachman Research Fellowship on Change in American Youth and the Angus Campbell Scholars Fund.
Because of its interdisciplinary nature, ISR has a unique role in the training of graduate students and providing opportunities for post-doctoral scholars and pre-tenure faculty at the university. Most of ISR’s fundraising effort has been devoted to creating research
opportunities for emerging scholars from various departments and colleges to work closely with the research faculty in both long-term and new research.
