Introducing Our 2024 Early Stage Urban Research Award Recipients

The Boston University Initiative on Cities (IOC) is pleased to announce the 2024 recipients of our 10th request for proposals for the Early Stage Urban Research Awards. These seed grants support early-stage academic research endeavors focused on urban challenges and urban populations, both domestic and global. This year’s seed grant cycle is the second to operate under our Urban H-index research agenda, with particular interests in health, heat, and housing research, and to provide much more funding for each project than in previous cycles. Out of a large pool of applications, the selection committee of professors from across different disciplines on campus and IOC staff selected 3 projects to fund for this cycle!
