The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Summer Institute is arguably the most important and influential annual event for empirical economists. For three weeks, more than 2,000 economists convene to participate in at least one of more than 50 workshops covering issues in labor economics, aging, health and other traditional subjects. This grant provides three years of continued support to NBER for the administration of the Summer Institute. In addition to defraying administrative expenses, funds support special methodological lectures at the Institute, the videotaping of sessions for wider distribution, and scholarships that underwrite the participation of emerging scholars from underrepresented groups.
