Dr. Robert L. Kahn relished the exchange of ideas. He enjoyed designing studies which targeted practical problems, and most of all analyzing and considering how best to apply the findings. He was a strong supporter of young people, junior scientists, women and minority scholars. He was committed to social justice and backed some of the toughest early decisions in the field.
Please join us in celebrating his career and contributions to the field of social science.
The Robert Kahn Fellowship for the Scientific Study of Social Issues fellowship fund was established to honor Bob Kahn's lifelong commitment to using the best social science to generate new insights on major social problems and possible solutions.

"Dr. Kahn's support came at a pivotal time in my academic career. At a time where I was feeling discouraged, the support and recognition given by the Kahn Fellowship provided me with confidence and reassurance that my research mattered." -Tissyana Camacho
