Stony Brook University and the Department of Economics are deeply committed to the recruitment, retention, and success of a diverse graduate student community.
Thanks to the generosity of one of our alumnae, the Department of Economics has started a Graduate Fellowship Program for qualified underrepresented students whose immediate academic plans include obtaining a doctoral degree in Economics.
The mission of these fellowships is to substantially increase the diversity and representation of students traditionally underrepresented in Economics. The long-range goal of the Fellowship is to encourage Fellows to assume their responsibilities as future leaders, educators, and researchers here in the United States.
The Fellowships offer an additional $75,000 of support over five years and a reduced teaching load after Advancement to Candidacy. This support includes summer research funding, moving expenses, computers, and books.
