Congratulations to Moriah Willow on recieving the National Science Foundation Research Fellowship
The Department of Sociology congratulates Moriah Willow, a Ph.D. student, on receiving a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. A detailed annoucement can be found as a BSOS featured story. This award provides 12-month support for three years.
Willow is a graduate fellow in Sociology’s Program for the Society and the Environment. His primary research focus is social inequality across time and space, and his interests include political and economic sociology, globalization and demography.
“The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship gives me the intellectual freedom and resources I need to aggressively pursue my research agenda and to find answers to important questions. Most immediately, this fellowship will allow me to spend more time working on my current research with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the primary federal law enforcement agency that enforces laws against workplace discrimination. This project focuses on changes in the degree of race and gender occupational segregation in state and local government employment and race and gender wage inequality between government workers in similar jobs since the passage of legal protections against discrimination,” Willow said.
Acknowledging the prestige of this award, Willow said he is grateful for those who have helped him achieve this goal.
