The Second Annual Sadie T.M. Alexander Conference for Economics & Related Fields
Vision 20/20: Inaugural Vision Scholars
In 2020, The Second Annual Sadie T.M. Alexander Conference for Economics and Related Fields will take place in Washington D.C. from February 20 through February 22. This year, we are excited and grateful for the opportunity to be working with the Urban Institute and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation as well as the Brookings Institution and the American Economic Association to expand our annual conference and continue our mission.
For the second annual conference, the Sadie Collective awarded ten full scholarships to undergraduate students, graduate students, and early career professionals. Scholarships were generously funded by the Urban Institute and Economic Policy Institute as well as granted on the basis of academic or professional scholarship and financial need. The ten scholars listed below will be publicly acknowledged at the inaugural Awards Night on February 22 and have an opportunity to meet with the organizing team.
