Professor Amber Wichowsky has been awarded a grant through the National Science Foundation for the Social Sciences (TESS) program. The award was part of the TESS program's Special Competition for Young Investigators. There were over 100 proposals from across the country and only eight were accepted. Prof. Wichowsky's project is titled "Pro-social Motivation, Social Position, and Support for Social Welfare Policy." The project is related to a pilot study that she conducted as part of the Marquette Law School Poll last fall.
