Sophomore and Junior economics majors (and first-semester senior majors in "E" classes) are invited to apply for the economics department's Summer Fellowship Program. The program awards fellowship money to supplement salaries at approved economic research institutions for summer internships of no less than eight weeks of full-time employment.
Currently the fellowship program supplements summer salaries up to the amount of $4,500 for approved internships. For example, an economics department fellow who works at a volunteer internship at an approved institution would be awarded a $4,500 fellowship from the department. A fellow earning $2,000 at an approved institution would be awarded a $2,500 fellowship from the department.
