Graduate Student Opportunities

Main content start


SIEPR Graduate Fellowships provide support to Stanford graduate students who are pursuing policy-relevant economics research and who are at the dissertation stage of their program. Students with a compelling empirical data collection project can apply for research funding from the George P. Shultz Dissertation Fund. There are also several fellowships offered by the Stanford King Center on Global Development.

Policy Briefs

SIEPR Policy Briefs draw you into today’s top economic issues through the prism of research, not politics. Our scholars write these pieces for policymakers, business leaders and other readers who want an unbiased and evidence-based understanding of the decisions, options and ideas being debated in Congress, statehouses and city halls.

Policy Forums
