National Grant Awarded

Read about how Jaime Booth, Assistant Professor, was awarded a $836,000 grant in order study impoverished Black youths.

Over the years, CRSP has funded projects in disciplines such as law, criminal justice, medicine, nursing, education, developmental psychology, psychiatry, sociology, economics, public and international affairs, and business. Our analysis of the 10-year period from 2004 to 2014 found a return on investment of more than $6 for every dollar awarded. We hope to continue this outstanding track record. Most recently, School of Social Work Assistant Professor Jaime Booth leveraged her CRSP Pilot Study funding into a national grant. She was awarded an $836,699 grant by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to study impoverished Black youths. The center continues to seek proposals from qualified researchers for funding for 2018–19. Visit our Web site for details.
