Carsey on Campus

The Carsey Institute is the University of New Hampshire’s major interdisciplinary applied research center for scholars working in the social, health, and behavioral sciences. Our goal is to help fulfill the university's research, teaching, and engagement mission by being a resource to faculty and graduate students where their scholarly work closely aligns with the mission of Carsey. Currently, we have thirty-eight Carsey fellows who have been named to three-year terms. The institute supports their work through publishing briefs and reports of their applied research and facilitating relationships across colleges, both on and off campus.

Graduate students conduct substantive research here under the supervision of faculty across multiple fields. Undergraduate students also participate in the Carsey Institute’s research projects. All students are eligible for our competitive fellowships and internship programs, including the John G. Winant Fellowship, the Carsey Social Innovation Internship, and the Nordblom Fellowship.

Finally, the Carsey Institute hosts events throughtout the year, from our Brown Bag series for researchers to policy seminars, social innovation panels, and student forums to share our work with the UNH community. View our events page to learn more.
