Strong incoming Ph.D. class for Fall 2011

We have 19 new students who have confirmed they will commence Ph.D. studies in Fall 2011. Among the students, 9 are domestic and 10 international (one each from China, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, and 5 from Korea); 7 are women and 12 are men.  The students come from a variety of excellent universities, including Pomona, Middlebury, Bocconi, Toulouse, Peking U and Seoul National. Several have research assistant experience at research institutions including the  Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute.  For the first time one of our incoming students was awarded a Eugene Cota-Robles Fellowship on the basis of a university-wide competition; nine such fellowships are awarded by UCD each year and cover fees and living expenses for two years.
