Sociology graduate students Katie Rogers, Sam Simon, Ilya Slavinski, and Haley Stritzel have received dissertation fellowships from the National Science Foundation.

The NSF Sociology Program's Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Awards (Soc-DDRI) support basic research on all forms of human social organization -- societies, institutions, groups and demography -- and processes of individual and institutional change.

The awarded projects are:
Katie Rogers - "Breaking the Grass Ceiling: Gender, Race, and Class in the U.S. Legal Cannabis Industry"
Sam Simon - "The Police Force: Gender, Race, and Use of Force Training in Police Academies"
Ilya Slavinski - "The Racialized and Gendered Governance of the Poor in Low Level Misdemeanor Courts"

Congratulations, all!
