Support the GPED

        GPED Funds


The James S. and Rosemary Worley Fund

James Worley, Director of the GPED for 25 years from 1963-1988, built the program to its position of strength. Under his leadership, the mission of the GPED, which was to train government officials and university teachers from developing countries, became more clearly defined, and the program developed strong and lasting relationships with people and governments around the world.

The James S. and Rosemary Worley Fund provides scholarship support to one or more students in the first-year class who exhibit, among other things, academic merit, interest in further study in economics, and commitment to economic development.

Mouzon and Sultan Siddiqi Citizenship Award

Mouzon Siddiqi was GPED Program Coordinator from 1987-2016. Mouzon and her late husband Sultan Siddiqi opened their family to all students, staff, and faculty. Their warmth, kindness, and openness created an environment of love and companionship within the GPED. Mouzon and Sultan demonstrated true citizenship. To honor this extraordinary couple, the GPED office set up the Mouzon and Sultan Siddiqi Citizenship Award. This award is given annually to a second-year student who displays many of the characteristics that define Mouzon and Sultan: kindness, inclusion, helpfulness, and altruism. This student is a problem-solver, a confidante, and a friend.
