Humphrey Fellow - India

Shouvik Mitra

Admission Date: Fall 2009
Completion Date: Fall 2010


Mr. Mitra is coming to Syracuse from India, where he works in helping build community capacity, enabling greater economic opportunities for rural citizens.  Families in poverty in these areas can benefit from both increased health and education services.  These services in turn can foster a higher standard for living for a population lacking a voice or strong institutional support.  While at Maxwell, Mr. Mitra plans on concentrating on social/public policy, policy analysis and microeconomics as well as rural and fund development.  He plans to return to India to continue work increasing rural standards of living and economic opportunities, adapting successful models of rural development to his homeland.
