American Institute for Economic Research Graduate Fellowships
AIER’s Graduate Fellowships are 12-week programs for graduate students who are working in areas that advance AIER’s mission: to affirm free enterprise, economic liberty, property rights, sound money, and legal institutions that shore up the rights of individuals to be free to the extent that their actions do not impinge on the rights of others.
Each Graduate Fellow is expected to make substantive headway on a project like a dissertation or thesis that will directly advance their academic studies. As part of their fellowship, each Fellow will craft a project plan, present their research to AIER staff and visitors, and share their work with the general public through written pieces for AIER’s website.
Each fellow should expect to work closely with AIER faculty to build skills, work through research issues, and build professional networks. Fellows will leave AIER having made substantive progress on their project as well as having developed intellectually and professionally.
