The Cornell Center for Social Sciences (CCSS) continues to fund Cornell research tackling some of society's most immediate challenges. In alignment with the Center's interdisciplinary ethos, CCSS's fall grants round consists of 16 awards across eight Cornell schools and colleges. These grants will seed research in 12 different departments, supporting the exploration of such topics as the efficacy of for-profit solutions to the teacher shortage, state medical boards' handling of the opioid crisis and generative AI's potential threat to public policymaking. See a complete list of Fall 2023 grantees here.
CCSS awards grants in the fall and spring semesters to Cornell faculty in the social sciences. Funding is available to launch pilot studies, conduct research and host conferences and workshops.
