Visiting Scholar Program

Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute

Our visiting scholars are dedicated to creating a more complete perspective on how the economy performs for the full spectrum of Americans. They look beyond aggregate economic indicators to examine how diverse communities are faring within the U.S. economy, and they analyze what policies work to improve economic opportunity and inclusion, and why.

The Institute annually invites scholars to pursue research while in residence at the Minneapolis Fed. Those who have demonstrated an ability to conduct high-level, peer-reviewed research are selected based on a proposal related to the Institute’s mission.
