Senior to Intern with Prestigious Economic Training Program

Hilla Haidari

Hilla Haidari ’16 has been awarded an internship at the 2016 American Economic Association Summer Training Program (AEASP), hosted by Michigan State University’s Department of Economics.

The intensive, eight-week residential program takes place June 4 – July 31, and is conducted in collaboration with Western Michigan University.

Since 1974, AEASP has increased diversity and helped prepare talented undergraduates who are seriously considering post-graduate studies in economics. The program offers students the opportunity to develop and solidify their math and other technical skills, which in turn will enable them to successfully meet the high demands of academically challenging doctoral programs. Students work alongside prominent professors and develop career-long mentorships.

Haidari is double-majoring at Hollins in economics and international studies.
