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 Center on Global Poverty and 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.
Our roster of more than 100 Senior Fellows and Faculty Fellows represent each of Stanford’s seven schools. We also host visitors from peer academic institutions, government agencies and the private sector.
