Lincoln Institute Scholars Program
In 2018, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy will host a program in which recent Ph.D.’s specializing in public finance or urban economics will have an opportunity to work with senior economists. Those funded through this program are known as Lincoln Institute Scholars. This program is organized by Daphne Kenyon and Daniel McMillen.
Lincoln Institute Scholars will be invited to the Institute for a program on May 3-5, 2018 that will include:
- presentations by a panel of journal editors on how to publish papers in public finance and urban economics journals,
- a workshop in which senior scholars comment on draft papers written by the Lincoln Institute Scholars,
- an opportunity for the Lincoln Institute Scholars to make presentations on their research, and
- a seminar in which leading scholars in public finance and urban economics present their latest research.
Applicants require a letter of application, resume, a one-page description of research interests, and a letter of recommendation from their department chair or dissertation advisor. Finalists will be chosen based on: 1) the likelihood that they will benefit from the Lincoln Institute Scholars program and 2) their potential to publish significant research relevant to the Lincoln Institute and the Department of Valuation and Taxation.
The Lincoln Institute will pay travel expenses for the Lincoln Institute Scholars in addition to a $500 stipend.
Applications should be sent to Daphne Kenyon, Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, 113 Brattle Street, Cambridge MA 02138 or firstname.lastname@example.org by March 16, 2018. Finalists will be notified by April 6, and will be asked to submit draft papers by April 20.
