Supporting the professional development of the faculty in the Department of Economics is a critical component of the MITRE mission. Two MITRE programs have been announced to supply resources to department faculty to support their research endeavors and provide opportunities to interact with colleagues at the forefront of economic research and education.
The MITRE Faculty Research and Professional Development program supports faculty participation in teaching and research conferences throughout the world - both to share advancements we have made on the Ann Arbor campus and to acquire new ideas developed by others.
The MITRE Faculty Research Award is granted on a competitive basis to faculty with cutting-edge research ideas who are in need of funding to collect pilot data, acquire resources, facilitate collaborative projects or provide research assistance. Awards are conferred after each of three application cycles per year.
