Lincoln Institute Scholars Program
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy will host a program on May 3-5, 2018 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.

Lincoln Institute Scholars will be invited to the Institute for a program 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. The Lincoln Institute will pay travel expenses in addition to a $500 stipend.
