The CYFC announces a targeted Level 2 funding program designed to support Penn State interdisciplinary faculty teams for social and behavioral science research on child maltreatment. This special initiative is designed to support research projects with research questions targeted at child maltreatment, a well-conceived theoretical basis, an interdisciplinary team of Penn State faculty collaborators, and the potential to gain external funding. The SSRI/CYFC Steering Committee and relevant college Associate Deans will review these Level 2 proposals.
