Main content start

SIEPR supports graduate students through fellowships and research funding. 

Fellowships

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 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

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.
