For over 50 years, the Summer Fellowship Program at the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER)
has provided a stimulating, collegial, and enjoyable opportunity for students to engage in a distinctive and
intensive economics learning experience.

The Student Fellowship is geared toward graduating college seniors planning to pursue doctoral programs in
economics or affiliated programs (e.g. economic history, law and economics, public policy, etc.). The program
is open to all students interested in pursuing graduate study in economics or related fields, regardless of
undergraduate major. During the four week program, 5-10 students participate in seminars on property rights,
money and banking, economic methodology, business cycle analysis and more. Students receive room and board
in “The Castle” as well as a $300 weekly stipend. Upon completion, students are invited to apply for in-
absentia fellowships for the succeeding academic year. In-absentia awards have historically averaged $5,000.

Students have the opportunity to interact with many scholars that spend the summer at AIER as Visiting
Research Fellows. Many students have found inspiration for their own research as well as opportunities for
collaboration through relations forged with these scholars. Student Fellows will also attend the summer lecture
series. In recent years, distinguished speakers have included Anna Schwartz (whose Monetary History of the
United States, 1867-1960, co-authored with Milton Friedman, had a profound impact on the way economists
think about monetary theory and policy) and Lowell Harriss (among other accomplishments he accepted the
Nobel Prize in Economic Science for the late William Vickrey in 1996). As a testament to the Program, many of
our students have revisited as second and third year students, as Visiting Research Fellows, and have had their
work published in either AIER’s semi-monthly Research Reports or monthly Economic Education Bulletin.

Founded in 1933, AIER is a private, nonprofit, organization dedicated to scientific inquiry into economic issues
and to the education of the general public through wide dissemination of its research. Since its founding, AIER
has focused on the economic benefits of free markets, disciplined fiscal and monetary policies, limited
government, and currencies freely converted into gold. AIER is located in the picturesque Berkshire Hills of
western Massachusetts. Numerous opportunities are made available to program participants and staff to avail
themselves of the area’s abundant outdoor and cultural recreational activities.

Complete information on the Summer Program, including the newsletter, application information, faculty
profiles, a sample calendar and course reading materials are available on our website at
Interested students should have their application materials submitted by March 14, 2008. Please feel free to e-
