July 11, 2018

PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] – PSTC trainee Jennifer Bouek (Sociology) has won the 2018 James Thompson Graduate Student Paper Award for her article, "Navigating Networks: How Nonprofit Network Membership Shapes Response to Resource Scarcity," which was published last year in Social Problems. The award is given annually to one graduate student by the Organizations, Occupation, and Work Section of the American Sociological Association. 

Bouek's article "motivates a network membership perspective via a mixed-methods study of one food bank and its associated food pantries, wherein actors navigate competing network demands that are emblematic of those faced by other nonprofits."
