Ellen Compernolle"The PSC Alumni Award provides key funding for an additional project stage that builds on previous research I conducted in Nepal, 2013. I will implement the next two components of this research agenda. The first consists of extensive data analysis using the CVFS and her my survey. The second piece consists of supplemental interviews of anomalous cases purposively sampled using these survey data. The award funding will support this critical phase in my larger research agenda by providing the foundation for my dissertation work. Throughout a professional career as a social demographer and international development researcher, I aim to understand the interrelationship between increasing international migration, family dynamics, and changes in local resource and energy consumption in developing countries."

Eva Mueller had a long and productive career as a faculty member in the Department of Economics and the Population Studies Center. Early in her career she contributed significantly to the study of consumer behavior in the United States and later turned to issues of economic demography in low income countries.

Purpose: The Fund was established to support research and training in demography and economics, especially projects focusing on low income countries and projects dealing with the socioeconomic position of women and investments in children's health and human capital.

Eligibility: PSC Research Faculty, Research Affiliates, and overseas PhD alumni are eligible to apply. Overseas collaborators not affiliated with the Center may be included for support.

Application Procedure: To streamline the process of applying for PSC's multiple endowment funds, we use a single Small Grants Application Form for all funds.
