Graduate FellowshipS



Stony Brook University and the Department of Economics are deeply committed to the recruitment, retention, and success of a diverse graduate student community. 

Graduate fellowship from the Economics department: 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 in the United States. 

Financial support: The Fellowships offer $75,000 in addition to the regular stipends over five years and a reduced teaching load after Advancement to Candidacy. This support includes summer research funding, moving expenses, computers, and books. Please click here for detailed information.

Eligibility: Students who are US citizens or permanent residents from underrepresented groups in Economics are eligible to apply for the fellowship. Applicants do not need to major in Economics. Students with strong quantitative background are encouraged to apply. Application requires GRE, personal statement, and letter of recommendations.

Graduate fellowship from Stony Brook University: Stony Brook University’s Turner Dissertation Fellowship provide support and encourage highly qualified underrepresented students in the preparation of their dissertation. This opportunity is available to Stony Brook University Graduate Students from underrepresented or other disadvantaged backgrounds who have not previously been supported by the Turner Fellowship Program. Detailed information for Turner Dissertation Fellowship can be found here.
