SIEPR fellowships provide up to three quarters of support to Stanford graduate students pursuing policy-relevant economics research. Fellowships are awarded to graduate students at the dissertation stage of their program. Students with a compelling empirical data collection project can apply for research funding from the Shultz Graduate Student Funding in Economic Policy. There are also several fellowships offered by the Stanford King Center on Global Development.
Graduating students may submit their job market paper for Landau Prize consideration. This $2,500 prize is awarded each year to the best student-written working paper. The award was established as a tribute to Claire and Ralph Landau and their commitment to economic policy research. Ralph Landau was a pioneer chemical engineer, entrepreneur, and benefactor to Stanford with a commitment to combining theory with applied fields to generate policy-oriented research.
Engage with the policymakers, scholars and other leaders dealing with some of the country’s biggest challenges. Our Policy Forums give you the chance to learn from academics and practitioners about the details of topics like affordable housing, health care, or the nation’s criminal justice system.
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.
