CSWEP: Margaret deVries Memorial Fund
Margaret deVries’ dedication to mentoring women in the economics profession is remembered through the Margaret deVries Memorial Fund. This fund was set up in 2010 with donations from family and friends. Each year the Fund will be used to pay the registration fee for doctoral students whose papers have been selected for presentation in the CSWEP sponsored sessions at the AEA Annual Meeting. Margaret deVries obituary appeared in the Winter 2010 CSWEP Newsletter.
