Calls for Fellowship Applications
The NBER coordinates pre- and post-doctoral fellowship programs supported by several federal and foundation funders. Fellowships are available for dissertation support for graduate students, and for post-doctoral researchers. Calls for most fellowships are posted in the fall, with closing dates in December. In the past year, the NBER was able to offer fellowship support for graduate students studying the economics of aging, behavioral macroeconomics, energy economics, gender in the economy, health economics, and on retirement and disability, and post-doctoral research support for study of aging and health, the aging workforce, disability, fiscal policy, retirement security, and tax competition. The NBER also offers a post-doctoral fellowship for a promising researcher who is a member of a group that is historically under-represented in economics, or who is studying diversity in the economics profession.
