The Lincoln Institute’s C. Lowell Harriss Dissertation Fellowship Program assists Ph.D. students, primarily at U.S. universities, whose research complements the Institute’s interests in land and tax policy. This program honors Professor Harriss (1912–2009) who taught economics at Columbia University and was a long-time member of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy Board of Directors.
The MPA program at UIC blended policy-based classes taught by knowledgeable professors with practical experience working with government agencies. I left the program immediately prepared for a career in the public sector.
