The Board of the American Society of Hispanic Economists has selected the AEA Mentoring Program as the recipient of the 2023 ASHE Institutional Service Award.
The AEA Mentoring Program was established in the mid-1990s by the American Economic Association Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession (CSMGEP) and is currently co-directed by Trevon D. Logan and Francisca M. Antman. The AEA Mentoring Program matches Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American economics Ph.D. students and new Ph.D. graduates with mentors in the field. It also facilitates networking between senior economists and students at all stages of the educational and career pipelines. One of the program’s main activities is the Summer Mentoring Pipeline Conference, which brings together the mentees in the program, their mentors, other senior economists in and outside of academia, and the undergraduate students in the AEA Summer Training Program.

Co-Directors Trevon D. Logan and Francisca M. Antman, as well as former long-time director Marie T. Mora, and all those individuals who have participated in the program’s organization over the years, have done an exceptional job leading this program that has impacted the careers of generations of minority economists as well as the economics profession more broadly.
Congratulations, and thank you for your hard work!
