Along with being a co-grantee for IPPSR's Michigan Applied Public Policy Research grant in 2017 I was also chosen as the Johnson Center's Mawby Fellow from 2016-2018. The Mawby Fellowship is an monetary and research assistance award given to one faculty member to work on a research project related to philanthropy. I worked with two undergraduate students at GVSU (Jamie Brda '18 and Madison Barnes '19) who worked tireless to categorize and code nonprofit and foundation data in the cities of Detroit and Flint. It is a wonderful program for GVSU faculty engaged in research related to the study of philanthropic behavior. My WGVU interview with Shelly Irwin is coming up on June 29 at 9:20 am.
