Gilbert DeBartolo worked with Professor Robert Haveman to write a paper that subsequently was published in the American Economic Review. Gilbert viewed that experience of doing mentored original research as one of the highlights of his Grinnell career. After his untimely death, his family established this award to recognize students who take advantage of similar opportunities to do supervised original research, whose quality we hope is recognized beyond the campus.
