THE PH.D. EXCELLENCE INITIATIVE, supported through a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, identifies high-achieving college graduates of color (or graduating seniors) who have a passion for economics and prepares them for the rigors of top-tier Ph.D. programs within the discipline. The Initiative positions these high achievers for further success in academia through its focus on research excellence, writing for publication, and peer networking and support. A high degree of one-on-one mentoring (working closely with Peter Blair Henry) is also a hallmark of the Initiative.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN APPLYING TO THIS PROGRAM, PLEASE CONTACT OUR VICE CHAIR, MELISSA FAMULARI (firstname.lastname@example.org)
THE NEXT DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION TO THE INITIATIVE IS: FEBRUARY 16, 2018

PROGRAM DATES: AUGUST 19-25, 2018
The Hoover Institution’s Summer Policy Boot Camp (HISPBC) is an intensive, one week residential immersion program in the essentials of today’s national and international United States policy. The program is intended to instruct college students and recent graduates on the economic, political, and social aspects of United States public policy. The goal is to teach students how to think critically about public policy formulation and its results.
Using a highly interactive, tutorial-style model designed to foster fact-based critical thinking on the most important policy issues, students will have a unique chance to interact directly with the faculty of Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, comprised of world-renowned scholars in economics, government, political science, and related fields. Each half-day will be dedicated to one topic, chosen because of its immediate relevance to today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. Participants will collaborate through class discussions, study groups, and team projects that encourage diverse perspectives. Enrollment is limited, in order to facilitate maximum interaction with the faculty and other participants.
HISPBC requires a 100% time commitment for the duration of the one-week program, including active collaboration with study groups outside of class.
Stanford University does not offer participants academic credit or grades for completing HISPBC.
The boot camp is FREE to all accepted applicants. Program fees, food and lodging will be covered for participants accepted into the program. Travel expenses and other incidentals are not included.*
CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION
Successful participants receive a certificate of completion endorsed by Hoover Institution’s director and HISPBC’s faculty director. To successfully complete the program, participants must:
- Attend all sessions
- Complete their assignments and projects
- Collaborate with their fellow participants in team projects and community-building exercises
If accepted, the UCSD Department of Economics has funds to aid students with their travel expenses.
