The UCLA Department of Economics is pleased to announce the second year of the Department of Economics Board of Visitors Research Fellows Program. The Research Fellows program is modeled after our popular Sharpe Fellows Program and will support talented undergraduates interested in economic research. Selected Fellows will work side-by-side with a faculty member on the professor’s research team, and will receive a stipend of $2500 per quarter (up to a maximum of three quarters), professional development training, and the opportunity to present their findings at an event in June 2018.
The deadline to submit complete applications to Graduate Division’s Fellowships and Financial Services in 1228 Murphy Hall is 4:00 pm, Wednesday, October 4, 2017. Please complete and submit the 2018–19 Luce Scholars Program Application and submit the supplementary materials listed on the application. The Graduate Division is able to submit three nominees for consideration.
The Sharpe Fellows program is your exclusive opportunity to join the best business candidates at UCLA. This selective program offers direct mentorship and career coaching from experienced professionals and program staff. As a Sharpe Fellow, you also receive professional development training through internship placement and a strong alumni network.
