New grants from the Cornell Center for Social Sciences (CCSS) will fund research ranging from exploring why people spread polarizing content online to assessing health care access in rural New York.
CCSS recently awarded 19 grants across 15 departments and seven colleges. These awards include funding for a conference, a superdepartment grant supporting collaboration in psychology, and 17 grants that will jump-start research across campus.
CCSS funds two rounds of grants each year for eligible Cornell faculty. The center is particularly interested in supporting junior faculty, seeding large projects and supporting interdisciplinary projects via these grants.
