With continued support from The Gambrell Foundation, the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute names its fifth cohort of Gambrell Faculty Fellows to research issues related to economic mobility in the Charlotte region.
This year, the Gambrell Faculty Fellowship program funds five projects with grants up to $18,000 each. The fellows join a growing group of researchers contributing to our community’s ongoing search for solutions that could foster greater equity.
“With a fellowship of 44 strong, we are excited to once again support our faculty and examine economic mobility in our community, providing actionable information for our community and region,” said Dr. Lori Thomas, Executive Director of the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute and the Charlotte Regional Data Trust. “We are grateful to The Gambrell Foundation for funding community engaged research.”
