The Mercatus Center Master's Fellowship Program is a competitive fellowship program for students in George Mason University's MA economics program (thesis option) who are interested in pursuing an advanced degree in applied economics in preparation for a career in business or public policy. Our master's fellows take specialized courses which provide analytic training in applying economic ideas to solve problems in the world.
The Mercatus Center Master's Fellowship program is targeted toward students with an interest in gaining advanced training in economics, but who do not anticipate a career in academia. Students who anticipate working in public policy or in a decision making position in business are ideal candidates for this fellowship.
