Three Students Awarded AABPA’s Marykathryn Kubat Award

AABPA is pleased to announce the three winners for the 2009 Marykathryn Kubat Award for Student Research. With the Kubat Award, the AABPA hopes to encourage student research and critical thinking which will prepare students for the budget and policy issues they will encounter in their careers, especially public service.

Eight finalists presented their research in poster form at the AABPA Spring Symposium and, orally, before a panel of judges the previous day. Originally, there were to be two prizes; however, the top three finalists were so close that the winners were expanded to three. Each winning students received a stipend of $1,000.

The three winning students and their research were:

Carl Davis, George Washington University, Spending By Another Name: Approaches for Enhancing Transparency of Tax Expenditures

Mariel John, George Washington University, Cost-Benefit Analysis of the National Science Foundation Graduate Student Fellowship Program

Jung-Joo Lee, American University, The Effects of TABOR on Local Governance in Colorado

The finalist’s abstracts will be featured on the AABPA website in the coming months on the AABPA website.
