Bush School Professors Awarded Scowcroft Faculty Research Grant

December 09, 2018

The Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service recently awarded its annual Faculty Research Grant to two Texas A&M professors. Drs. Christine Blackburn and Erin Snider received unanimous votes from the review committee to receive the grant. 

The goal of this grant is to provide funding for policy-based research to professors. The grant is provided through an endowment by Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft and is open to all professors at Texas A&M University. Professors awarded the grant are required to submit a paper summarizing the findings of their research upon completion of their project.

Dr. Blackburn’s project for this grant will be to study neglected tropical disease knowledge and awareness among populations in the southern United States. Her goal is to be able to design education and outreach projects that will help in reducing risk of infection in at-risk communities.

Dr. Snider will research the politics of economic change in Egypt post-2011. Her research will examine Egypt’s shifting power structures, the relationship between the 2011 uprising and economic interests of groups—both international and domestic—and how economics have shaped political outcomes.

At the end of their projects, Drs. Blackburn and Snider will each produce reports on their findings and publish their research in relevant journals, newspapers, and publications.
