To continue his spirit of substantive and methodological innovation in the analysis of economic behavior, Jim and his family established the James Morgan Innovation in the Analysis of Economic Behavior Fund to encourage U-M graduate students to use PSID data in new and original ways.
The competition is open to graduate students at the University of Michigan who have achieved candidacy. Preference will be given to students with a strong affiliation with the Institute for Social Research, and applicants working with a faculty member affiliated with ISR or applicants who can demonstrate that they will benefit from such an affiliation. Preference will also be given to an applicant with a substantively or methodologically innovative project using data from the Panel Study on Income Dynamics. Applications on related topics are also welcome.

Recipients of this Award may not be employed more than ten hours per week during the tenure of the Fellowship. Recipients may not hold this Award in conjunction with another award.
