ISSR's mission is to promote excellence in social science research. One of our most important goals, served by the
ISSR Scholars Program
, is to strengthen existing social science infrastructure on campus in order to stimulate high-quality scholarship and interdisciplinary collaboration. ISSR Scholars participate in a year-long seminar with Mentors,
aomi Gerstel, PhD
Mary Fechner, PhD
(Office of Resource Development), to help each of to develop a strong research grant proposal. In addition to attending in-depth sessions on grant writing and receiving valuable peer feedback on their proposals, ISSR Scholars are given unique opportunities to consult with nationally recognized experts about their proposals.
This year's ISSR Scholars will develop innovative new research that has the potential to shape social theory and policy. Please take a moment to meet our 2017-18 Scholars, and to congratulate and wish them well.
