2009 Research Grant Recipients

The center once again put out a call for proposals in 2009 to fund exceptional research that enhances our understanding of enrollment issues and expands our collective capacity to meet the needs of students, institutions, and greater society.

The center provided research grants intended to help researchers:

  • initiate or complete exceptional research that critically examines issues related to enrollment management;
  • present their research outcomes at credited conferences and/or workshops;
  • disseminate their research outcomes within credited scholarly publications.

Project summaries are available on the publications page of the center’s website.
