Sociology students awarded Provost's Undergraduate Research Initiative grants

October 31, 2022

The College of Social Science announced the recipients of the SSC-Provost’s Undergraduate Research Initiative Program (SSC-PURI), which supports undergraduate research through awards of up to $2,000 for Fall-Spring semesters for students majoring in our College.

The SSC-PURI provides talented undergraduates, from first-year students to seniors, with an opportunity to work closely with faculty on substantial research projects—usually, but not exclusively, as part of the faculty member’s own scholarly project. 

This year's recipients from MSU Sociology are Katie Burkhardt, Cassidy Versen and David Koster. Katie and Cassidy will work with Dr. Sarah Prior. David will conduct his research with Dr. Aaron McCright.
