    General Support/Program
Stanford University’s Spatial Social Science Lab provides a collaborative environment for research and training on geography in the social sciences. We first came to appreciate the work of Stanford University political scientists affiliated with the Lab, including Jonathan Rodden (who directs the Lab) and Adam Bonica, through their participation in the Foundation’s Solutions to Polarization workshop. Their papers on the relationship between political geography and polarization, and on innovative ways of equipping voters with better information on candidates for office, were very well received. This general support for program grant will help underwrite their ongoing research agendas on these and related topics.
