Application Deadline: April 15, 2022.

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University’s Don Lavoie Fellowship is an entirely virtual, semester-long fellowship designed to support advanced undergraduates, recent graduates considering graduate school, and early-stage graduate students. Don Lavoie Fellows will strengthen their understanding of political economy and its application to their research and policy interests by engaging with readings and participating in discussions with scholars and their peers. Students from any discipline who are interested in studying key ideas in the Austrian, Virginia, and Bloomington schools of political economy and learning how to utilize these ideas in academic and policy research are encouraged to apply.

  • A 1-2 page cover letter explaining:
    • your post-secondary education to date,
    • your research and career interest,
    • your familiarity with the thinkers associated with the Austrian, Virginia and Bloomington schools of political economy, and
    • what you hope to get out of the program.
  • A current resume/CV.
  • A few short answer questions.

Applicants must be able to participate in both synchronous and asynchronous online programming. 

Application Procedure

  • Applications for the Fall 2022 semester must be submitted by April 15, 2022.
  • Application review will begin after the deadline and decisions will begin to be announced approximately eight weeks after the deadline.
