Lewis Prize to Michigan Grad Student!

The Society of Labor Economists awards its H. Gregg Lewis prize every two years to the best article in the Journal of Labor Economics over a two year period.

This year's co-winner is UM economics graduate student Bill Lincoln, for his paper (co-authored with William Kerr) entitled "The Supply Side of Innovation: H-1B Visa Reforms and U.S. Ethnic Innovation."

Congrats Bill!
