My participation in the program reinforced my passion in development economics. The insights I gained are informing me well in my current work and graduate studies in international development. Thank you Beloit Economics Department for this wonderful experience!

“Passionate about international development, I constantly seek to understand why some nations prosper while others lag behind. Reading Timur Kuran’s The Long Divergence was absorbing and made me think deeply about how religion and institutions in general affect economic development. The Upton Forum allowed me to directly interact with the author himself, a rare learning opportunity for an undergraduate student. In addition to Kuran’s residency on campus, the Forum well integrated a senior seminar, economics thesis writing, and other intellectually-stimulating events and components. My participation in the program reinforced my passion in development economics. The insights I gained are informing me well in my current work and graduate studies in international development. Thank you Beloit Economics Department for this wonderful experience!”
