C&J Assistant Professors Sun Hong and Mohammad Yousuf received FRESSH Awards from the College of Arts & Sciences. Only 18 faculty members from across the College were selected, so the fact that 2 of them are from C&J is especially noteworthy. As described in the weekly Research Report by A&S Associate Dean for Research Chris Lippitt, "This past December, The College of Arts & Sciences partnered with the OVPR's office to pilot the Fostering Research Expansion in the Social Sciences and Humanities (FRESSH) program, which is dedicated specifically to fostering research within these disciplines. Through a specialized training program, researchers will be provided with the resources necessary to develop their concepts into competitive proposals that will be submitted to federal agencies for funding consideration. Opportunities such as FRESSH are vital to expanding our support for all of our research efforts on campus."
