F. Thomas Juster Economic Behavior Research Award Fund

The F. Thomas Juster Economic and Behavior Research Award Fund was established shortly after Tom’s death by his family, friends and colleagues to honor him and to further the wide array of research that characterized his distinguished career.

The Juster Fund provides small research awards to emerging scholars in the social sciences conducting empirically grounded economic research using the Health and Retirement Study, the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, the Surveys of Consumers, or Time Use Study.

Form and Scope of Award

The Juster Research Award Fund will provide a $5,000 grant to one senior graduate student from the University of Michigan annually. The Juster Award may be spent in the following ways:

  • Travel (related to data collection or academic collaborations)
  • Acquiring datasets
  • Hiring an assistant
  • Salary

Awards are intended for use within one year, but may be extended upon request for an additional six months.
