Vernon E. Jordan, Jr. Doctoral Fellowships
The Economic Club of Washington, DC, and the Consortium partner in supporting three doctoral fellowships with awards of $10,000 each. The Philip M. Dearborn Fellowship is named in honor of the nation's leading authorities on urban finance, intergovernmental finance, and regional economic development, especially with regard to the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The Vernon E. Jordan, Jr. Fellowship honors a past president of the Economic Club (2004-2008) who worked tirelessly on significant economic and financial issues.
The Fellowships are offered annually for proposed doctoral-level research addressing issues of direct and specific relevance to the Washington, DC metropolitan area, including issues of economics, public and private finance, education, transportation, law enforcement, social welfare, housing, and regional and community development. It is expected that the research will rely to a significant extent on information and data derived from or relating to the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
