La Follette School of Public Affairs Seeking Project Proposals on Cost-Benefit Analysis
Thursday, May 9, 2024

The La Follette School of Public Affairs in Madison is seeking project proposals for their fall semester course in cost benefit analysis.


The Cost-Benefit Analysis course offers an opportunity for a team of three to five master’s students to provide organizations research and analytic support on a public policy or public management issue. The projects can take many forms. Many estimate the costs and benefits of proposed policies, drawing on relevant research. Some draw on evaluations of ongoing programs to predict the costs and benefits of continuation, modification, or replication. Others develop and demonstrate the application of cost-benefit analysis protocols as components of research projects. 


Questions teams have recently helped answer: 



The partnership would be from September to December 2024 and the deadline to submit a project proposal is May 17. If you have a “ready to go” project with data already available on hand but haven’t had time to crunch the numbers, this opportunity could help you get the analysis you need to make strategic, evidence-based decisions at no cost to your organization. 


Additional information, past project reports, and a project proposal form can be found on their website. This course is offered every year so if this year doesn’t work, you are invited to plan to submit a proposal next year.
