The U.S. Agency for International Development on Thursday announced that it would award $26-million to seven universities to establish “development labs” designed to study foreign aid and help solve problems such as chronic conflict and lack of adequate food resources in the developing world. The five-year project, which intends to focus the efforts of university researchers on the problems facing the world’s poor, could eventually see as much as $130-million in award money. The winners are the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California at Berkeley, Michigan State University, Duke University, Texas A&M University at College Station, the College of William & Mary, and Makerere University, in Uganda.
