Applications for the 2004 Abell Foundation Award

The Johns Hopkins Institute for Policy Studies invites applications for the 2004 Abell Foundation Award in Urban Policy. The $5,000 cash award is given annually to the Johns Hopkins student who writes the most compelling paper on a pressing problem facing the city of Baltimore. The contest is open to all full-time students in any degree-granting program of the university.

The award is sponsored by the Baltimore-based Abell Foundation. The contest is intended to encourage fresh thinking about the challenges facing Baltimore City and, at the same time, provide an incentive for promising students interested in urban problems to come to Baltimore and focus their talents on the city's problems, both during graduate school and beyond. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges comprising Baltimore policymakers, opinion leaders and IPS faculty.

Submission guidelines are available at http://www.jhu.edu/ips/newsroom.

Entries must be received by Jan. 16, 2004. Submit papers to Abell Award in Urban Policy, ATTN: Sandra Newman, Institute for Policy Studies, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 North Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21218. Phone: 410-516-7174; fax: 410-516-8233.
