The Edward M. Gramlich Fellowship in Community and Economic Development is co-sponsored by the Center and NeighborWorks®America. The fellowship is named for Edward “Ned” Gramlich, a former member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and former chairman of NeighborWorks® America, who was a strong and consistent advocate for consumer protection in the financial arena.
The Fellowship honors the memory of the late John R. Meyer, who was the James W. Harpel Professor of Capital Formation and Economic Growth, emeritus at the Harvard Kennedy School. One of the leading urban economists of his generation, Meyer, also served as president of the National Bureau of Economic Research and as a professor at Harvard Business School and in the economics departments at both Harvard and Yale. He chaired the Center's Faculty Committee from 1997-2003 and served as the Center's Interim Director from 1996 to 1998.
