Jamie Rowen and Shauhin Talesh Awarded NSF Grants

JSP doctoral students Jamie Rowen and Shauhin Talesh have each been awarded prestigious National Science Foundation "dissertation improvement grants." These highly competitive NSF grants:

provide funds for items not normally available through the student's university. Additionally, these grants allow doctoral students to undertake significant data-gathering projects and to conduct field research in settings away from their campus that would not otherwise be possible. Proposals are judged on the basis of their scientific merit, including the theoretical importance of the research question and the appropriateness of the proposed data and methodology to be used in addressing the question.

Professor Lauren Edelman is chairing both dissertations.
