Bass Connections Grant

Bass Connections Grant

In early 2018, the DCIHR research team was awarded a grant by Bass Connections, a university-wide initiative launched by a $50 million gift from Anne and Robert Bass. Bass Connections aims to provide Duke graduate and undergraduate students with greater exposure to engaged inquiry across a wide variety of disciplines and the chance to experience the intersections of Duke and the greater community and world. The grant awarded to DCIHR will support a research project examining the impact of expressive writing on adult survivors of pediatric cancer and their caregivers. This research will engage undergraduate and graduate students in novel roles, and is expected to begin in January 2019.
