Funding

Digital Scholarship projects often require funding and extra personnel to complete. Here are some starting points for meeting these needs.

The goal is to stimulate scholarly initiative by encouraging faculty to explore new directions in research and scholarship that contributes at the cutting edge to the development of statistical methods for social scientific problems. CSSS also provides separate grant funding for graduate and undergraduate student projects.
