Mellon Foundation extends its support to the CSSR

The CSSR was established in 2001-02 in large part due to the strong support of the Andew W. Mellon Foundation, to build capacity in the collection and analysis of quantitative social science data. We are delighted that the Mellon Foundation has now given the CSSR a third substantial award to help us to continue our work. The new award, covering the period from mid-2014 to mid-2017, will enable us to promote exchanges between researchers using quantitative data and researchers using qualitative material. Specifically, the award will support the establishment of a new research unit within the CSSR focused on families, kin and relationships, as well as supporting our annual Summer School.
