When Professor Richard Friedman died in 1997, the Department of Economics established a memorial award in his name. Rick was always the friend of students in need. For this reason, we thought he would be most honored by an award to a student who had overcome significant adversity (personal, health, financial, family, political). The Department of Economics gives a cash award of $300 in the fall and spring semester to the economics major who has overcome significant odds in getting his or her education--the Richard Friedman Memorial Award. Rick was a great professor and friend to us all.
The only requirement is that you have completed five upper division economics courses (current semester courses do not count). Please note that the scholarship committee will review all of the applications and choose one lucky student. Nonetheless, your application information will remain confidential. To apply, please submit the Richard Friedman Memorial Scholarship Application by Friday, April 8, 2022. The award is given out at the Economics Department Annual Awards Event.
