Undergraduate Research Assistant Openings

Main content start

SIEPR offers research opportunities for Stanford undergraduates throughout the year. Undergraduate Research Assistants (UGRA) work directly with SIEPR faculty on faculty-led projects and build up skills to conduct policy-relevant economics research. Students also engage with our broader community at UGRA seminars and roundtable discussions, and other SIEPR events. We invite students from all areas of study to apply for UGRA positions and look forward to the diverse backgrounds and perspectives that each student brings to the program.

If you are interested in becoming an undergraduate research assistant, please apply early. Applications are reviewed as they are received.

To receive updates about the UGRA Program throughout the year, please join the SIEPR UGRA Interest List.
