In 2021, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy will host a program in which recent PhDs specializing in public finance or urban economics will have an opportunity to work with senior economists. Those funded through this program are known as Lincoln Institute Scholars. This program, organized by Daphne Kenyon and Daniel McMillen, will link to the American Real Estate and Urban Economics (AREUEA) 49th annual National Conference taking place on June 3–4. We are assuming that the conference will be virtual.
Lincoln Institute Scholars will be invited to participate in a June program that will include:
- an opportunity for Lincoln Institute Scholars to make presentations on their research (the afternoon of June 2).
- attendance at any AREUEA conference sessions that the Lincoln Institute Scholar chooses (June 3 and 4),
- presentations by a panel of journal editors on how to publish papers in public finance and urban economics journals (the afternoon of June 5), and
- a workshop in which senior scholars comment on draft papers written by the Lincoln Institute Scholars (the afternoon of June 5).
Applicants require a letter of application, resume, a one-page description of research interests, and a letter of recommendation from their department chair or dissertation advisor. Finalists will be chosen based on: 1) the likelihood that they will benefit from the Lincoln Institute Scholars program; and 2) their potential to publish significant research relevant to the Lincoln Institute and its goal of Efficient and Equitable Tax Systems.
The Lincoln Institute will pay Lincoln Institute Scholars a $500 honorarium in addition to the conference registration fee.
Applications should be sent to Daphne Kenyon, Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, at email@example.com using the subject line “Lincoln Scholars Application” by April 16, 2021. Finalists will be notified by May 7, and will be asked to submit draft papers by May 21.
