The Evidence for Policy Design (EPoD) Research Fellows Program supports high-potential candidates for graduate programs in economics and public policy. EPoD fellows work alongside faculty to strengthen their skills and refine their research interests in development economics. They engage in all aspects of EPoD’s ongoing research on development issues such as finance, health, gender and education, while learning about research methods under the mentorship of professors. The program also provides an opportunity for fellows to explore their own research interests to inform their future course of study. Past fellows have gone on to top graduate programs at the Harvard Kennedy School, MIT, Princeton, and the University of Chicago.
Fellows receive training in microeconomic research methods, including research design, data analysis, and field work. In addition, they are typically given the opportunity to spend time in a developing country where a project is being carried out in order to gain hands-on experience in field research. Fellows also receive mentorship and guidance from EPoD faculty as they deliberate on their future academic and career paths.
