In 2013, Mark A. Israel, ’91 established the Mark A. Israel ‘91 Endowed Summer Research Fund in Economics to provide a generous stipend and expense allowance to a student wishing to collaborate closely with a faculty member in IWU’s Department of Economics. Mr. Israel had the opportunity to pursue undergraduate research while a student at Illinois Wesleyan, and his gift honors the faculty who helped shape his professional career. This collection of work by IWU students is indicative of IWU’s vibrant tradition of student research and faculty mentorship. Papers will be added yearly as students conclude their research. Press releases describing students' accomplishments are also available for Lu Liao, Anh Dao, Ben White, and the current awardee, Hang "Jade" Phung, '17. For more information on the endowed fund, please visit IWU Research. For information on contributing to student research, we invite you to contact our Advancement Office.
