Judi Mesman receives NWO-Vici grant

LUC Dean Professor Judi Mesman has been awarded the NWO-Vici grant for her project on racial socialization within a family context.

The project combines a long-term observational study with an experiment to investigate the role of parenting in shaping children’s prejudices in Dutch, Turkish and Surinamese families in The Netherlands. The grant of 1.5 million euros will be used to fund three PhD students and a postdoc.

Veni, Vidi, Vici
It has been a successful year for Mesman, who received a 2 million ERC Consolidator grant in December 2016 for her research on Reducing Gender Bias in Educational Pathways. Judi Mesman is now one of only a handful of academics within the Dutch Social Sciences and Humanities to have obtained the academic trilogy of Veni, Vidi and Vici grants.
