Mercatus Center MA Fellowship Program

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is currently accepting applications for Fall 2012 entry into the Mercatus MA Fellowship program. With just a few days left to apply, the deadline is currently April 20th.

The Mercatus MA Fellowship is a competitive program for students who are interested in pursuing an advanced degree in applied economics in preparation for a career in public policy. Full tuition and a generous stipend are included in the fellowship which is aimed at students interested in advanced training in economics, but who do not anticipate a career in academia.

While earning an MA in economics from George Mason University, Mercatus MA Fellows work 20 hours a week with Mercatus Center scholars and have the opportunity to author or co-author policy studies, academic papers, and op-eds. Graduates have gone on to positions in a number of government agencies including the Joint Economic Committee, the Office of Management and Budget, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as well as non-profit policy research centers.

Interested students must apply for admission into the GMU MA program and the Mercatus MA fellowship simultaneously. More information about the program is available at Interested students should feel free to get in touch with Leck Shannon at with questions or to discuss whether they might be good candidates for the program.
