Finnish ASLA-Fulbright alum Bengt Holmström wins the 2016 Nobel Prize in Economics, together with Oliver Hart, for his contribution to contract theory. Dr. Holmström was an ASLA grantee in 1974-1975 to Stanford University, where he continued to gain his doctorate. Currently he works at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as Paul A. Samuelson Professor of Economics.
The Fulbright Center in Finland wishes to sincerely thank everyone who has supported our programs during this past academic year!
Altogether 94 grantees participated in the Center’s exchange programs during the academic year 2015-2016 (47 Americans and 47 Finns). And thousands were reached by our other services both in Finland and in the United States. This would not be possible without the unwavering support from our alumni, partners, and sponsors.
