The Minneapolis Fed announced the 2023–2024 cohort of visiting scholars selected to conduct research while in residence at the Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute.
Institute visiting scholars will research questions that address how to increase economic opportunity for all Americans.
“The 19 scholars selected this year use a variety of techniques, study a broad set of questions, and bring a range of personal perspectives,” said Institute Director Abigail Wozniak. “It's exciting to see how much interest there is in being part of a group like this.”
Over the past two years, the Institute has returned to hosting visitors in person and has developed its fall research conference into a vibrant gathering point.
"We are looking forward to welcoming this new cohort,” said Alessandra Fogli, assistant director for inequality research. “This group will be able to take full advantage of in-person opportunities to connect once again.”
Since 2017, the Institute has hosted a total of 114 visiting scholars in six cohorts. The following scholars make up the Institute’s seventh cohort.
