Zywicki Receives Hoover Institution Fellowship

Professor Todd Zywicki is the recipient of a Hoover Institution annual postdoctoral fellowship for the academic year 2008-2009. Zywicki was awarded the Arch W. Shaw National Fellowship, through which he will work on the topic "Bankruptcy and Personal Responsibility: Consumer Bankruptcy and Consumer Credit in the 21st Century" while he is in residence at the Institution for the period September 29 through October 30, 2008.

The fellowships are awarded through the W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellows program, and some of the fellowships are endowed by Hoover Institution supporters. Since the program's inception in 1971, over 450 fellowships have been awarded to allow individuals to complete an original, significant research project at the Hoover Institution in Stanford, California.

The organization's website states that The Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, Stanford University, is a public policy research center devoted to advanced study of politics, economics, and political economy—both domestic and foreign—as well as international affairs.
