Where student opportunity comes first

student programs

The Center aims to provide student fellows with an immersive mentorship experience by partnering them with experienced scholars and professors conducting research that is vital to the Center’s mission.

 

To facilitate this mentorship experience, the Center currently provides three different fellowship opportunities to students:

Undergraduate Research Fellowship

Students awarded an Undergraduate Research Fellowship have the opportunity to gain hands-on training and learn the fundamentals of effective research methods. They are assigned a research project or topic where they work and research alongside professors and scholars who are experts in that area. Undergraduate fellows take part in regular Center-sponsored trainings to compliment and enhance their undergraduate educational experience. Recipients of this fellowship are given a stipend each semester.

Applications for academic year (Fall/Spring) 2018/2019 are due March 21, 2018.

You will need the following to complete the application:

  • Resume
  • Cover Letter
  • Writing Sample
Koch Scholars Program

The Koch Scholars Program gives students from a variety of academic disciplines the opportunity to meet together on a weekly basis to discuss an assortment of pre-selected books, films, and podcasts on a given topic. These in-depth readings and discussions give students the chance to expand their knowledge on certain issues by exploring celebrated literature. Center-affiliated professors participate and help guide the discussion. Each Koch Scholar receives a complimentary collection of the selected readings as well as a cash stipend.

Applications for academic year (Fall/Spring) 2018/2019 are due March 21, 2018.

Graduate Research Fellowship

Students awarded a Graduate Research Fellowship provide support to the Center’s research and collaborate with faculty, staff, and other students affiliated with the Center. As they build their skills as academic researchers and policy analysts, these graduate student fellows are trusted with opportunities to lead research projects, attend conferences, present findings, and publish in academic journals and the popular press. Graduate students must be enrolled in the Huntsman School’s Master of Science in Economics (MSE) or Master of Science in Financial Economics (MSFE) programs to qualify for the fellowship. Each fellow receives a tuition scholarship.
