Each year, IQSS awards research grants to a select group of graduate student affiliates to support dissertation research-related costs. In exchange for their ongoing contribution to the life and activity of the IQSS community, the selected recipients may apply this funding toward research-related costs such as survey development, technical services, and publication costs. We are pleased to announce the recipients of this year's 2021 research grants and to highlight their work below.
