Two Princeton sociologists, Scott Washington and Scott Lynch, have received honors for their graduate research.
Lynch, assistant professor of sociology, has received the 2001 Dissertation Research Award from the Behavioral and Social Sciences Section of the Gerontological Society of America for his dissertation, "Life Course and Cohort Variation in the Relationship between Education and Health and Mortality."
Lynch joined the Department of Sociology in September after receiving his master's degree in statistics and his Ph.D. in sociology from Duke University.
Washington, a Princeton graduate student,was selected by the Eastern Sociological Society to receive the 2002 Candace Rogers Award for an outstanding graduate student paper. He will present his paper, "Social Classification: An Integrative Approach," and receive his award at the society's annual meeting in March.
This marks the third year in a row that a Princeton graduate student has won the Candace Rogers Award. Previous winners include Eszter Hargittai in 2001 and Nina Bandelj in 2000.
