The deadline to apply to the Joseph Schumpeter Fellowship
for the 2022 Spring semester is fast approaching. Applications for the fellowship are due on
January 5, 2022.
Joseph Schumpeter 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.
The Schumpeter Fellowship is a total award of up to $1,000
per semester, which includes a stipend, meals, and reading materials. Fellows also have the opportunity to get advice on research, jobs, and graduate school. Once again, the deadline
to apply is January 5, 2022
Interested in learning more? Check out our alumni spotlights of former Joseph Schumpeter Fellows Sadaf
, and Timothy O'Shea
to read in their own words
how the program enriched their undergraduate experience and made them better-prepared to pursue their career goals after graduation.
For undergraduates interested in pursuing a graduate degree, Mercatus also has several fellowship opportunities for graduate school. We have our
programs for those students who want to pursue a graduate degree in economics at Mason, as well as our
Fellowship programs for students looking to attend other universities and disciplines.
We invite you to pass along this information to any interested students or to any professors that might have students interested in our programs. If you have any questions, please let me know.
