Summer Scholarship Program
In 1995, the Private Enterprise Research Center initiated its Summer Research Scholarship Program for second-year graduate students. Early introduction to research serves as a springboard to further academic pursuits. During the summer, student scholars complete a research paper and present their results in a seminar setting.
