Dr. David Kemme Selected for Prestigious Fellowship

For release:  February 20, 2013

David Kemme, FCBE economics professor and Chair of Excellence, was selected as a recipient of a fellowship for the 2012-2013 Short-Term Travel Grant (STG) Program. The STG Program is a part of the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX). IREX is an international nonprofit organization that employs field-tested methods and innovative use of technologies to develop practical and locally-driven solutions with partners in more than 100 countries.  Their mission is to provide thought leadership and innovative programs to provide lasting change globally.

The STG Program supports postdoctoral scholars and professionals to conduct independent or collaborative research in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. STG is designed to allow scholars to conduct short, targeted projects. Kemme will perform research on the sovereign wealth fund, Samruk-Kazyna, in Kazakhstan in April. Kemme will have the opportunity to interview executives and analyze the performance of individual companies held by the sovereign wealth fund. His intent is to look at the links between corporate governance, transparency and firm performance.
