the CSB Economic Scholars of 2018-2019

Economics Scholars Program for Undergraduate Research

Nine honors students and three Economic Development Fellows from UNCW's Department of Economics and Finance presented at the 2019, 13th Annual Economic Scholars Program (ESP) for Undergraduate Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas on April 12, 2019. Over two semesters, the students conducted independent research with the guidance of a faculty advisor. Despite a shortened fall semester due to Hurricane Florence, all of the UNCW students were invited to present their research at the conference which only accepts half of the papers submitted. The students underscored the reputation of the School of Business and UNCW. 

The students included in the 2018-2019 group are as follows: Brad Allison, Vaughn Burgess, Annie Edmonston, Maria Felix-Cubero, Luke Haigh, Caleb Kuhne, Paula Maudos-Gumbau, Ben McNair, Alina Ramos-Ruiz, Ashton Russell, Sam Struhsaker, and Garrett Wade. Faculty advisors included: Dr. Ed Graham, Dr. Adam Jones, Dr. Tom Simpson, Dr. Danny Soques, and Dr. Ethan Watson.
