Summer Fellowships

The fellowship program was established to assist MIA and BA/MIA students at GPS in conducting high-caliber summer internships related to research on economic growth, equality and market change in the Pacific region.

The Center will help fund two to four GPS students each year for work broadly related to economic analysis and policy research. Awards will range from partial to full support, which will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Find out more about the fellowship.
