  • The Mercatus MA Fellowship is a two-year, competitive, full-time fellowship program for students pursuing a master's degree in economics at George Mason University who are interested in gaining an advanced degree in applied economics in preparation for a career in public policy.

    MA Fellows can pursue one of two general tracks that prepare them for a career in public policy, the policy research track and the strategic communications and outreach track. All fellows are required to take courses toward an MA in economics from George Mason University and are encouraged to take electives in courses that further their expertise in conducting and communicating economic analysis of public policy issues. Fellows must also attend theory to practice readings groups and career development workshops, spend at least 20 hours a week working with Mercatus scholars and staff, and complete a Mercatus Graduate Policy Essay.

    The total award includes a monthly stipend, full tuition support (nine credits per semester), and practical experience conducting and disseminating research with Mercatus scholars and staff on pertinent policy issues.
