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
