This grant provides support for a series of interrelated activities designed to support and strengthen the economics department at Howard University, the nation’s leading producer of Black PhDs in economics and the only Historically Black College or University that offers a doctorate in economics. Over the three-year grant period, funds will be used to increase Howard’s capacity to recruit, educate, and graduate economics students through providing fellowship support for undergraduate students, doctoral students, and a post-doctoral researcher. In addition, grant funds will be used to augment and strengthen the resources of the Howard economics department, including an upgrade to the department’s computer lab and seminar facilities, the launch of a faculty development program, and the creation of a mentoring program that pairs students with dedicated faculty mentors.
