For over half a century, the James McKeen Cattell Fund has provided support for the science and the application of psychology. The Fund offers a program of supplementary sabbatical awards (“James McKeen Cattell Fund Fellowships”). These awards supplement the regular sabbatical allowance provided by the recipients’ home institutions, to allow an extension of leave-time from one to two semesters.
Our department’s Dr. Bollen is a recipient of a 2022-2023 Cattell Sabbatical Award. He was one of the top 4 applicants this year and has been awarded the full amount of $40,000 to cover his salary to extend his sabbatical from 1 to 2 semesters in the next academic year. We are all excited by Dr. Bollen’s proposal to synthesize various approaches and methods used to demonstrate causal inference.
