C. Lowell Harriss Dissertation Fellows

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. Named in honor 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, this program provides a link between the Institute’s educational mission and its research objectives by supporting scholars early in their careers.
