Research Roundup

NOVEMBER 11, 2014

Several faculty and students at Boston College School of Social Work have been recognized for their work on critical research studies and creative projects serving the community. While the commendations represent a diversity of subject matter and methods of inquiry, all of the projects share the same principal mission: to support work to create social change.

The scholarships, awards, and commendations are from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institute on Aging, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, and other organizations.  More about research roundup »

The one-year $156,500 R03 Small Research Grant from the NIH National Institute on Aging will illuminate the experiences of a population that, amidst the growing awareness of child sexual abuse, has been generally overlooked, said Easton.  More about grant to aid study »
