Mentoring Program (formerly known as the Pipeline Project)
In the mid-1990s, CSMGEP created a Mentoring Program for students accepted or enrolled in a Ph.D. program in economics; since then the program has expanded to include new doctorates as well. Students are matched with a mentor who sees the student through the critical junctures of their graduate program (including the transition from course work to research) or the early stages of their post-graduate career. The Mentoring Program also hosts an annual Pipeline Conference to which all participants and their mentors are invited. The conference, which is held each year at the AEA Summer Training Program, facilitates contacts among minority students in different schools and at different stages in the pipeline.
In 1974 the American Economic Association established the AEA Summer Training Program to prepare talented undergraduates for doctoral programs in economics and related disciplines, by offering a unique opportunity for students to gain technical skills in economics and conduct research with prominent faculty. The Summer Training Program is currently hosted by the University of New Mexico. Please contact Gabriel Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Sponsored by the American Economic Association and the National Science Foundation, the Summer Economics Fellows Program is designed to increase the participation and advancement of women and underrepresented minorities in economics. Fellows would spend a summer in residence at a sponsoring research institution, such as a Federal Reserve Bank or other public agency. Summer economics fellowships are available to senior graduate students and junior faculty.
