The Innovation in Social Research Fellowship
The Innovation in Social Research Fellowship was designed to support a candidate to complete dissertation research and writing. The Fellowship Fund has been depleted as per the donors’ wishes, so ISR is no longer offering the Innovation Fellowship.
The purpose of this fellowship was to promote innovative empirically grounded, social scientific analysis of important intellectual or practical issues pertaining to human behavior or social life. The proposed research challenged conventional wisdom, used innovative/novel techniques and/or cross-disciplinary boundaries in new and unusual ways. In addition, the award facilitated such analysis in active association with an ISR research project or program area.
