It will provide funds to travel to and present the findings at an academic conference.
Professor of Economics
This grant will support his project "Naming Names: the Reputational Cost of Cheating," and will aid in investigating the reputational costs of cheating in sports. Funds will be used to gain access to databases and for a research assistant.
