Regional Visiting Scholars Program: Community Development

Posted by Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on July 16, 2018

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s Community Development and Regional Outreach Department is hosting an event to celebrate the first-year accomplishments of its Regional Visiting Scholars Program and encourage interested academics to submit proposals for the program’s second year.

When is the event?
This event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 23, 2018, at the Philadelphia Fed.

Who should attend?
Any faculty member or doctoral student in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware engaged in community and economic development research and interested in submitting a proposal for 2019 is encouraged to attend. Selected scholars will have their research published as a Philadelphia Fed discussion paper and will be compensated for their work. Program details can be found here.

What’s on the agenda?
The half-day event will include a presentation of the research under way by the department’s current Regional Visiting Scholars: Oliver Cooke (Stockton University) and Vincent Reina (University of Pennsylvania). The Bank’s data manager and a representative from the new Federal Statistical Research Data Center will also provide an overview of the rich data sets that could potentially play a role in any research proposal. A preliminary agenda is available here.

Registration is now open. Please circulate this message to other faculty members and doctoral students in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware who might be interested in participating, and feel free to contact Keith Wardrip (215-574-3810) with any questions.
