2013 Summer Fellows

To promote careers in social policy research, particularly for scholars who might otherwise be drawn to government or academe, Mathematica launched its summer fellowship program in 1992. The program supports independent, self-directed research on economic or social problems that affect minority groups or individuals with disabilities. The summer fellows, all of whom are working on a Ph.D., have access to Mathematica researchers, programmers, library staff, data, and other resources to help complete their projects. This year's summer fellows are as follows:
