In the past month, Barnard faculty members have secured new grants to support their research in several fields. Below are the most recent for the Barnard community:
Elizabeth Ananat received a National Science Foundation subaward from Duke University for “The Effects of Scheduling Regulation on Workers and Families.” She also received a Robin Hood Foundation subaward from Columbia University for “Return on Investment to Cash and Near Cash Programs.”
Sarah Morrison-Smith and Adam Poliak were awarded an unrestricted gift from Google’s exploreCSR initiative to launch a program called “Barnard BEARS: Better, Enhance, and Advance Research Series.” Barnard BEARS is a workshop preparing Barnard undergraduates for opportunities in computer science research.
Andrea Ritchie and Mariame Kaba received support from an anonymous donor for “Interrupting Criminalization: Research in Action,” a project with the Barnard Center for Research on Women's Social Justice Institute.
