American Institute for Economic Research: Graduate Fellowships
The American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) invites applications for its Graduate Fellowships, 12-week programs for graduate students who are working in areas that advance AIER’s mission: to affirm free enterprise, economic liberty, property rights, sound money, and legal institutions that shore up the rights of individuals to be free to the extent that their actions do not impinge on the rights of others.
Each Graduate Fellow is expected to make substantive headway on a project like a dissertation or thesis that will directly advance their academic studies. As part of their fellowship, each Fellow will craft a project plan, present their research to AIER staff and visitors, and share their work with the general public through written pieces for AIER’s website.
Each fellow should expect to work closely with AIER faculty to build skills, work through research issues, and build professional networks. Fellows will leave AIER having made substantive progress on their project as well as having developed intellectually and professionally.
Graduate Fellows receive a $350 per week living stipend.
Housing is provided in the AIER manor or cottages right on campus, close to the beautiful town of Great Barrington. Lunch is provided for AIER staff, fellows, and interns every workday. AIER covers travel costs to and from campus.
Graduate Fellowships are awarded through a competitive application process for Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters. Fellows are expected to arrive on campus for orientation by the start date.
Upcoming session dates and deadlines to apply:
- Summer 2024: May 27th through August 10th. Applications due by March 1, 2024.
- Fall 2024: August 26th through November 15th. Applications due May 1, 2024.
