Founded in 1954, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University is a leader in the field of behavioral science and its application to contemporary issues. The Center is recognized for its ability to foster original interdisciplinary research and collaboration, particularly through its residential fellowships. Under the leadership of Margaret Levi, the Center is now building upon these strengths and expanding its capacity by working on a larger range of contemporary problems, exploring more varied collaborations, and improving its engagement with the public—all with the intent of making social and behavioral science relevant. This grant will help provide the Center with the flexibility and funding to pursue these goals.
