Advancing Economics

The Kautz-Uible Fund is a critical component of the University of Cincinnati's Economics Department, providing creative opportunities for enhanced learning and growth to students, faculty and alumni.

The fund is far-reaching in its impact and is the vehicle for advancing the Department of Economics in the Carl H. Lindner College of Business. Established in 1982, the fund continues to be transformational in its impact.

The nationally-ranked Lindner Department of Economics offers real-world experiences to students through co-op, internships, study abroad and networking opportunities. The Kautz-Uible Fund enhances and expands these opportunities by supporting:

  • Kautz-Uible fellowships that provide scholarships to outstanding economics students and the Caroline M. Kautz book awards that help pay for book expenses;
  • The Kautz-Uible Women in Economics initiative that provides scholarships and mentoring to female students in economics;
  • An annual lecture series presented by leading economists from around the country;
  • Domestic and international trips for students, including Chicago, New York, and Norway;
  • The recruitment of the best and brightest professors of economics.

“The Kautz fellowship program empowered me to think broadly about the application of economics outside of the classroom. As a result, I developed a lasting passion for the economic principles that were the focus of my undergraduate studies and I apply those principles daily in my practice as an antitrust lawyer.”
