The Robert Kahn Fellowship for the Scientific Study of Social Issues

The Robert Kahn Fellowship for the Scientific Study of Social Issues was established by the students, colleagues, family and friends of Robert Kahn to honor his lifelong commitment to using the best social science to generate new insights on major social problems and point toward their solutions. The Kahn Fellowship was created in this spirit.
