Tara Grillos

Please join me in congratulating Tara Grillos, assistant professor of political science, for winning a $632,188 grant from the National Science Foundation for a project where she will serve as principal investigator.

Tara and co-PI Michael Touchton of the University of Miami will conduct research in Kenya in partnership with Innovations for Poverty Action and the Elgeyo-Marakwet County Government. Their findings will inform the creation of a new participatory budgeting initiative in Elgeyo-Marakwet, and the research will be relevant to policymakers and practitioners implementing participatory processes around the world.

The project, “Collective Decision Making and Local Public Good Provision: Experimental Evidence,” builds upon Tara’s previous research that the College of Liberal Arts funded with an Exploratory Research in the Social Sciences Grant.

Congratulations, Dr. Grillos!
