Ken Pearson Ken Pearson Scholarship
In recognition of the many contributions made by the late Professor Ken Pearson to the GTAP Network.

CoPS
Funding for this scholarship has been graciously provided by the
Centre of Policy Studies (CoPS), Victoria University.




Purpose: To provide a sponsorship program to:
  • support the participation of promising young researchers at the annual GTAP conference; and
  • encourage their contribution to the use and further development of analytical software for CGE modelling, following in the tradition of the late Ken Pearson (the developer of the GEMPACK software).

Eligibility: To be eligible candidates must meet two basic criteria:
  • An early career researcher within five years of the start of their research careers. This normally means that they have been awarded a PhD or equivalent research doctorate in the past five years.
  • Active in undertaking applied model-based analyses of real world problems using GEMPACK and/or related software. Those individuals seeking to extend existing tools available to CGE modellers will be given special preference.
