American Economic Association Summer Training Program Minority Fellowship

AEASP offers talented undergraduates seriously considering post-graduate studies in economics, the opportunity to develop and solidify their math and other technical skills to enable them to successfully meet the high demands of academically challenging doctoral programs.

Through the program, students receive eight weeks of intensive training in microeconomics, math, econometrics and research methods. At 3 credits per class, students have the opportunity to earn 12 college credits.

AEASP is an all-inclusive package covering tuition, fees, living expenses, transportation, books and program excursion costs. All participants will receive a $3,250 stipend upon successful program completion.

The Program Scholarship aims to broaden participation and increase diversity in the economics profession to ensure that more traditionally underrepresented views and backgrounds contribute to scholarship in the field. All US citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for scholarship assistance. Preference will be given to applicants who, by their background, life experience, and scholarship can show they will bring greater diversity to the field and who also demonstrate financial need.

The Summer Training Program is hosted by Michigan State University.
