The Anderson Award was established in 1982 by the award’s namesake, Carl Arvid Anderson. The fellowship's purpose is to foster the advancement of economic research and is awarded annually to one or more pre-doctoral or post-doctoral students.
Yale University operates several high performance computing clusters through the Yale Center for Research Computing (YCRC). The Cowles Foundation has funded the purchase of nodes on the high performance computing (HPC) clusters Grace, which members of the Department of Economics can use.
The YFSRDC is a branch of the New York Research Data Center. Federal Statistical Research Data Centers are partnerships between federal statistical agencies and leading research institutions. They are secure facilities providing authorized access to restricted-use microdata for statistical purposes only.
The Cowles Foundation regularly offers postdoctoral fellowships to promising young scholars in economics. Fellowships provide an opportunity for new Ph.D.s to focus on developing a strong research program in a stimulating collegial environment prior to taking on the full responsibilities of a ladder or tenure track faculty position.
