Economics Discretionary Fund

Chart with Arrow pointing upward with Individual in the background writing in a book.

This fund delivers support for the betterment of the Department of Economics and its commitment to student success, academic excellence, research, and advancement. By investing in the Department’s areas of greatest need, your gift makes a direct impact on our students, faculty, and programs by providing critical funding that shapes the Department today and tomorrow.

As chair of FIU’s Department of Economics, I know that money is scarce and State funding often comes with strings that limit its use. The Economics Discretionary Fund makes it possible for the Department to undertake critical activities to further student success, ranging from helping recruit excellent new faculty to holding planning events to position the Department to meet student needs.Cem Karayalcin, Professor and Chair, Department of Economics, Florida International University, Miami, FL 33199
