Economics Student highlights : Bill Cui '21, Genna Liu ‘19, Madison Minsk ‘19 and David Ringel ’19

Please join us in congratulating the following Economics students for their achievements:

Junyang (Bill) Cui ’21 : Recipient of Irving Institute Research Grants

Junyang (Bill) Cui ’21 and Harish Tekriwal ’21 received a $5,700 grant from the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society. The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society has awarded its inaugural round of one-year seed grants to nine energy-related projects proposed by faculty and students. Topics range from the transformation of energy systems in New Hampshire and Greenland to novel technologies that enable more efficient motors. The selection process was competitive, Bill and Harish were the only undergraduates among the pool of 36 applicants. Cui and Tekriwal will use their grant money to study an economic concept called demand response, in which energy markets incentivize consumers to lower their demand during peak hours of energy consumption, and reduce costs of energy usage. According to the students, demand response is an untapped resource that could be crucial to New Hampshire in particular.  The in-depth report of their project can be found on The Dartmouth.

Genna Liu ‘19 : Recipient of Rocky Center Senior Honors Thesis Grant

The Rockefeller Center Senior Honors Thesis Grants program provides funding of up to $1,000 for undergraduate students writing a senior honors thesis in the social sciences. 

Madison Minsk ‘19 and David Ringel ’19 : Class of 2019 Rockefeller Leadership Fellows

Rockefeller Leadership Fellows (RLF) is the capstone leadership program for seniors. As Rockefeller Leadership Fellows, seniors gain a better understanding of the qualities and responsibilities expected of leaders and learn to adapt their own leadership styles to different situations. Fellows are selected during their junior spring and begin the program as seniors the following academic year. As they take part in workshops, dinner discussions, and team-building exercises, the Fellows examine their skills, qualities, and attributes as leaders, and analyze how these influence teamwork and play out in their lives.
