In early April, Northrim Bank made a grant of $100,000 to ISER for its ongoing research initiative, Investing for Alaska’s Future. Northrim has now granted ISER a total of $1 million for this research, which is examining the importance of investment for building a strong Alaska economy. Scott Goldsmith, professor emeritus of economics at ISER, directs the initiative.
