In Conversation with: Mark Duggan and SIEPR Graduate Fellows

In Conversation with: Mark Duggan and SIEPR Graduate Fellows

Get to know some of SIEPR's Graduate Fellowship recipients at our next "In Conversation with" event on Wednesday, June 16, from 12 - 1pm PT

SIEPR supports the next generation of researchers at the cutting edge of economic policy research. Graduate student support may take the form of funding for purchasing data or providing other research support. At other times, SIEPR covers the cost of the final year of a student’s graduate fellowship to enable them to complete their dissertation and launch their career.

This small-group conversation with SIEPR Director Mark Duggan will offer the opportunity to learn more about SIEPR Graduate Fellows, hear about their research, ask questions, and engage in an open dialogue.
