Mentoring and training the next generation of poverty researchers
One of our central goals is to encourage and help younger scholars to develop interests, skills, and expertise in poverty research.
Specific mentoring and training activities will include:
U-M Seminar on Poverty Research
During the academic year, we will host around 10 seminar presentations for U-M based affiliates, visiting scholars, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. This regular seminar will provide a focal point for poverty research at the U-M, encouraging sustained dialogue between researchers and introducing graduate students to faculty and other students.
Visiting Scholars Program
Each year, the NPC will host a small number of faculty, researchers, and policy analysts through our Visiting Scholar Program.
Summer Workshop on Poverty Research
Conduct a summer training program for poverty researchers.
