About Our Student Programs
Our number-one goal at the Lowe Institute of Political Economy is to provide students with opportunities to apply their classroom learnings in economics to real-world problems through supervised research. Through our student programs at the Lowe Institute, students from Claremont McKenna College and the other Claremont Colleges team up with experienced faculty members to conduct original research through various types of projects and initiatives.
