Overview
The Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University is an interdisciplinary research collaborative with a mission to address social problems caused by inequality. A critical area of work of the Cook Center is to train the next generation of scholars in the social sciences, with a particular emphasis on the field of economics. The Diversity Initiative for Tenure in Economics (DITE) has been central to achieving this goal. DITE is a research-mentoring program that facilitates successful transition from junior faculty to tenured associate professors for economists from underrepresented groups. This grant will help DITE remedy the gross underrepresentation of economists from these groups in the ranks of university faculty by supporting junior faculty in developing the research and teaching profile that will lead to promotion and tenure.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Energy Access Project  
The Energy Access Project (EAP), housed at Duke University, explores new climate finance frontiers with multilateral development banks and Chinese financial institutions to enhance global low-carbon investment supply to developing countries. The EAP’s New Frontier in Climate Finance project looks to increase the catalytic nature of foreign investments, move those investments into critical low-carbon growth sectors needing demonstration and de-risking, and create a race-to-the-top that mobilizes Chinese capital outside its borders and into these markets. Progress towards these goals has quantitative aspects, which the project aims to contribute to over one-year and five-year timeframes. (Substrategy: China National Policy)
