Two faculty members from the Department of Political Science, Clara Suong and Karin Kitchens, were among eight faculty campus-wide to receive funding from the Institute for Society, Culture, and Environment through its new ISCE Social Science PREP (Preparing Your Research for an Extramural Proposal) Program. The program provides $7,500 in financial support as well as mentoring to faculty members in the social sciences who are new to preparing proposals for extramural funding or who have had limited success in the role of principal investigator.
