Leigh Fine, visiting assistant professor at the School of Leadership Studies, has been selected for funding in the 2013 Williams Institute Small Research Grants program.

The Williams Institute, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender policy think tank based at the University of California, Los Angeles' School of Law, has awarded Fine a $1,395 grant. Fine will use the grant to obtain data and software to analyze the relationship between sexual identity and educational outcomes. Fine’s project was selected from a large pool of applicants from diverse academic backgrounds, including psychology, sociology, social work, public health, law, political science, education, medicine and American studies.

The Williams Institute is dedicated to conducting rigorous, independent research on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy. The Williams Institute produces high-quality research with real-world relevance and disseminates it to judges, legislators, policymakers, media and the public.
