Partners and Affiliates


ISCE regularly partners with other Virginia Tech entities to offer additional funding opportunities.

Frequent partners include other Virginia Tech investment and thematic institutes, colleges, the Fralin Life Science Institute's Global Change Center and other groups, such as the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative and Vibrant Virginia.

Available funding opportunities are posted on the ISCE webpage.

Faculty Affiliates

All faculty who receive financial or technical support from ISCE are considered affiliates of the Institute.

Using a broad definition of the social science community, ISCE considers faculty in traditional social science disciplines and departments, faculty in behavioral and public health science disciplines and departments, policy and humanity scholars, and individual faculty embedded in departments not traditionally aligned with the social sciences, but whose research addresses contemporary social problems within their respective disciplines to be affiliates of the Institute.
