Since 1946, this program has provided direct training and financial support to students pursuing graduate degrees in economics. The two-week program takes place at our beautiful 110-acre campus in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. Students participate in three core seminars on the Evolution of Property Rights, Sound Money, and Scientific Procedures of Inquiry. In addition, visiting scholars present lectures on a variety of economic topics.
During their two-week residence, students receive room and board plus a stipend, and those who successfully complete the program are invited to apply for the E.C. Harwood Fellowship, an award that provides financial assistance for the following academic year. Awards have averaged between $1,250 and $2,500 per student in recent years.
Specific Eligibility Criteria
Gratuate students who are enrolled in a doctoral program in economics or an approved related field such as law and economics or financial history; or graduating college seniors who plan to be enrolled in such a program.
