Fall 2006 Population News Archive

The University of Colorado Population Center (CUPC) recently funded four developmental grants, totaling $26,467.00. These awards represent an invaluable way to support junior and senior faculty, fund graduate students, bridge programs, and encourage interdisciplinary research.

The CUPC Developmental Grant Review Committee - which consisted of Andrei Rogers, Jason Boardman, and Richard Rogers - made the following awards: Jill Williams, for her project entitled "Temporary Female Labor Migration and Household Survival Strategies in Rural South Africa"; Jani Little, for her project entitled "GIS and Contextual Data: An Archive for Population Research"; Jason Boardman, for his project entitled "Psychological Resiliency as a Heritable Characteristic"; and Lori Hunter for an exploratory trip to consider potential future demographic research projects.

Richard Rogers was invited to Texas A&M University, September 18-20, 2006 to consult with faculty and administrators about building a new interdisciplinary population center. Such interactions further enhance our University of Colorado Population Center's goal of bridging departments, programs, centers, institutes, and universities.
