NBER Announces Nonprofit Fellowships


The NBER has just announced that it will award dissertation fellowships on "The Economics of the Nonprofit Sector" to four graduate students for the coming academic year: Jason Brown, Stanford University, whose topic is "Behavior of For-Profit and Not-for Profit Firms Under Medicare"; Pedro Carneiro, University of Chicago, who is studying the "Determinants of and Consequences of Public and Private Schooling in Chile"; Mehdi Farsi, University of Southern California, for "Changes in Hospital Quality After Conversion from Non-Profit to For-Profit Status"; and Jonathan Zinman, MIT, for "Nonprofit Organizations and the Community Redevelopment Act." This is the third year of an NBER program designed to encourage research on nonprofit institutions by NBER Research Associates and Faculty Research Fellows, and to support dissertation research on the same subject by graduate students in economics who work closely with them.

Faculty grants were made to: Dora Costa, MIT, who will study "Bowling Alone Reconsidered -- Women's Labor Supply and Participation in Nonprofit Organizations"; Susan Dynarski, Harvard University, who will focus on "Tuition Tax Credits and Price Setting in the Higher Education Market"; William Goetzmann and Sharon Oster, Yale University, whose research is on "Valuation Issues in the Economics of Art Museums"; and Frank Wolak, Stanford University, who will analyze "Organizational Form Choice for Market and System Operators in Competitive Electricity Markets."
