George Mason University in collaboration with Mercatus Centre invites applications for the Frédéric Bastiat Fellowship in USA 2021
The Frédéric Bastiat Fellowship is a one-year, competitive fellowship program awarded to graduate students attending master’s, juris doctoral, and doctoral programs in a variety of fields including economics, law, political science, and public policy.

Fellows will explore how this framework is utilized for a variety of topics (including entrepreneurship, technological innovation, regulation, immigration, natural disasters and military conflicts, and federal and state fiscal policy) during a series of colloquia where they will interact with Mercatus scholars that work on the cutting edge of policy analysis and policy-relevant academic research.
