George Mason Schar School of Policy and Government Announces New Research Grant

George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government announced that it has received a gift of $1.1 million from the Charles Koch Foundation. The five-year grant will support Mason’s Center for the Study of Social Change, Institutions and Policy by funding research on immigration, population change, and labor markets.

“Professor Goldstone and his colleagues at the center are carrying out some of the most important and relevant research today on the impact of global population changes. We are grateful for the Charles Koch Foundation’s support for this vital research, which will further expand the Schar School’s reputation for shaping the national conversation on key public policy issues,” said Mark J. Rozell, dean of the Schar School of Policy and Government.

“The Schar School is evaluating critical questions at the heart of the immigration conversation, and we’re excited to support their substantive statistical research to enrich understanding about the contributions immigrants make to our society and economy,” said Ryan Stowers, Executive Vice President of the Charles Koch Foundation.
