16 Graduate Students Receive Dissertation Support through MFM project

The Macro Financial Research Initiative Awards Funding to 16 Graduate students to Advance Their Dissertation Research

To encourage innovative new research developing macro models with financial linkages, the Becker Friedman Institute’s Macro Financial Modeling project under the Macro Financial Research Initiative awarded fellowships to sixteen promising graduate students to advance their dissertation research.

With generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the CME Group Foundation, the MFM project provides research support to doctoral students in economics and finance pursuing innovative work connecting macroeconomics and finance.  This, in turn, advances the project’s goal to work toward identifying more reliable quantitative models better suited for policy analysis that supports stability in the financial sector and nurtures more productive investment in the overall economy.

Students funded for the 2018-2019 year include:

The project co-directors Lars Peter Hansen and Andrew W. Lo, congratulate the sixteen awardees, and thank all the students who applied.

In order for graduate students to benefit from these fellowship opportunities, the MFMproject requires generous support.  If you’d like to donate to the MFM project and fund future doctoral research conducted by exceptional students, please contact Diana Petrova, Assistant Director of MFRI at dpetrova@uchicago.edu
