The GCSC has had the opportunity to provide funding to catalyze and support interdisciplinary research conducted by both faculty and students.
Twice each year we award research funds to graduate students who conduct interdisciplinary projects combining the student’s thesis interest with another area of focus. Graduate students who conduct interdisciplinary projects benefit from exposure to other fields of study, gaining a broader perspective on approaches to research questions.
