Cornell Center for Social Sciences awards 11 faculty fellowships

The Cornell Center for Social Sciences (CCSS) has awarded 11 fellowships to Cornell faculty. The 2024-2025 cohort, representing seven Cornell colleges, will use their semester in residence at CCSS to research topics such as the impact of government support on clean energy innovation, the effects of pay transparency laws and the development of scalable interventions that could reduce the harm caused by online misinformation.

CCSS's Faculty Fellows Program gives outstanding faculty in the social sciences a semester of course release to pursue high-impact research projects. The program also offers research funds, professional development and opportunities for fellows to discuss their research within an interdisciplinary community.

Past fellows have used CCSS support to secure external grant funding, write books and conduct research. Peter Enns, the Robert S. Harrison Director of CCSS, said “we are thrilled to have another incredible cohort of faculty fellows conducting transformative research that will positively impact the world.”
