CALL FOR PROPOSALS    The American Sociological Association: Research on Effects of Campus Carry. Since 2004, 10 states have passed laws allowing concealed handguns on college campuses in some form or another, and in 2014 alone 14 states submitted similar legislation.

Deadline is July 31.  For more information: http://www.asanet.org/career-center/grants-and-fellowships/campus-carry
