Economics Professor Muhammad Quibria Earns Second Fulbright Award, Will Study Microlending in Bangladesh
Economics professor Muhammad Quibria will continue his expansive work as an international economic policy expert this summer, as he will represent Morgan State University and the United States in Bangladesh as a Fulbright faculty scholar. Dr. Quibria, a two-time Fulbright scholar, will study the impact of microcredit on poverty in Bangladesh, with specific focus on small loans given to women.
“There have been a number of students and faculty members from Morgan to win this award, and I’m very pleased to be one of them,” says Dr. Quibria. “Morgan has certain advantages as far as international development, the diverse populations of its students and faculty, and I hope that I am making a contribution to that legacy.”

He is the author/editor of a dozen of scholarly books and monographs and numerous research papers in leading scientific journals in economics and international development. He has also contributed numerous op-ed pieces in national and international newspapers.
