Heggeness quoted in The Chronicle

Misty HeggenessMisty Heggeness (MPP/MSW '02 and PhD '10), research economist and branch chief at the U.S. Census Bureau, was quoted in The Chronicle of Higher Education in an article titled "Why Don't Young Scientists Get More Grants? They Often Don't Apply". The report highlights research done by several federal-grant experts that breaks down NIH award rates by age groups, finding that older scientists aren't necessarily any more successful than are their younger counterparts. Heggeness comments, "This definitely complicates things and requires a larger community effort to examine why younger applicants are not applying to NIH for funding as they have in the past. We also need to think creatively about what it means to have an aging work force and how to plan for the future given this reality."
