Stephen Burd was quoted in the Arkansas Online about fellowship awards from public flagships. 

Stephen Burd, a senior policy analyst for the nonpartisan public policy group New America, said such high-dollar awards are "not totally unusual among the public flagships" as they recruit top students.
"What you find is these universities have to just kind of continually up the ante in terms of convincing students to come," Burd said.
