We are very excited to announce the creation of UVa Economics’ Gatherings for Researchers with Advanced Degrees (GRAD)! UVa Econ GRAD is an Alumni Interest Group devoted to promoting and enriching economic research within the UVa alumni community. Many of us formed lasting relationships with fellow students and faculty, and all of us share many common experiences from our time at UVa. These relationships and experiences form the bonds that hold this community together. It is our sincere hope that this organization will strengthen those bonds in a way that benefits each and every one of us. Our goals are:

  • Foster research collaboration among our members, and improve career and networking opportunities
  • To create a forum for graduate students and alumni to present and receive feedback from others within this community
  • Recognize alumni with exemplary career accomplishments or academic contributions
  • Provide funding and scholarships to support exceptional research ideas
