Tom Waidzunas wins an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant

Fresh on the heels of his ASA Sexualities section paper award, Tom Waidzunas has won another national award: an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant!  This grant will help support his dissertation research on the social construction and understanding of scientific and religious evidence in “gay conversion therapy.”   The Program Director, Laurel Smith-Doerr wrote to Tom:   “Congratulations!  The competition was very stiff.  Your proposal was one of the few that we are likely to be recommending for funding.” Tom’s dissertation advisor is Steve Epstein, who, by NSF convention, is listed as co-PI on the grant.
