Undergraduate Fellowship Opportunity

The Joseph Schumpeter Undergraduate Fellowship is a competitive, renewable fellowship program for undergraduate students at George Mason University. Fellowships are open to full- and part-time degree-seeking Mason students from any discipline who are interested in studying key ideas in political economy and learning how to utilize these ideas in academic and policy research.

Schumpeter Fellows study foundational writings in political economy from several notable economists and attend a series of conversations with various George Mason economics faculty. Schumpeter Fellows will join a network of Mercatus students, alumni, faculty, and scholars who are conducting and engaging with cutting edge research in contemporary political economy.

The Schumpeter Fellowship includes a stipend, meals and all required readings at program events, and advice on research, jobs, and graduate school. Schumpeter Fellows are also eligible to apply for conference and research support. It is a total award of up to $2,000 per year ($1,000 per semester).

The deadline to apply for the Fall 2017 semester is May 31, 2017. To apply and find more information, visit their website
