Milken Institute recognizes Turner

Sarah E. Turner, assistant professor of education and economics, is among eight scholars to win the 2002 Milken Institute Award for Distinguished Economic Research.

The award was established in 2000 to honor the best economics research in the academic, business and public policy communities. Turner’s paper, “Trade in University Training: Cross-State Variation in the Production and Use of College-Educated Labor,” studies the relationship between institutes of higher education and an area’s stock of skilled workers.

Turner shares the $2,000 prize with three colleagues at the University of Michigan, John Bound, professor of economics, and graduate students Jeffrey Groen and Gabor Kezdi.

The Los Angeles-based Milken Institute recognizes original, substantive research in capital markets, regional economics, demographics, global economics, labor markets and human capital.
