Promoting Achievement and Diversity in Economics - Apply by July 15th!

The Department of Economics is pleased to launch a new initiative for undergraduate students called Promoting Achievement and Diversity in Economics (PADE). PADE is a year-long program that offers advising, academic support, and professional development opportunities. Participants will attend weekly study sessions for economics and math classes and occasional seminars with faculty or professional economists in the DC area. PADE is designed to increase diversity in economics by supporting traditionally under-represented students who major in economics, particularly those exploring the BS degree, and those who are considering graduate study in economics or a related field. It is funded by the Moving Maryland Forward initiative, the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, and the Department of Economics. 

For more information, please email PADE@econ.umd.edu. You can apply to participate in the program by completing this form: https://goo.gl/nG2sZl. Applications are due by July 15.
