We have many openings throughout the year for Stanford students in our Undergraduate Research Fellows (UGRF) program and also through the Stanford King Center on Global Development.

Want to hear directly from the policymakers, scholars and other big players dealing with some of the country’s biggest challenges? Our Policy Forums give you the chance to learn the economic ins and outs of topics like affordable housing, health care, or the nation’s criminal justice system. Come with your questions and expect direct answers from experts on the front lines of policymaking.

The SIEPR/Economics Predoctoral Research Fellowship program is a full-time, post baccalaureate program designed to prepare individuals wishing to gain valuable training and experience toward a career in academic research in economics or public policy.

SIEPR faculty mentor undergraduate students as a part of the Undergraduate Research Assistants (UGRA) Program. Faculty work directly with UGRAs on policy-relevant economic research while also helping them build research skills.

Get Briefed

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.

Connect with other undergrads interested in economics and policy issues through the Stanford Economics Association (SEA), a student-run group that offers a range of activities for econ majors and others interested in economics, and Stanford in Government (SIG). SIG offers public service internships and hosts events on campus that help foster a culture of civic and political engagement at Stanford.
