Description: 

The AEA Summer Training Program is a six-week intensive curriculum that was designed to help talented undergraduate students learn skills and conduct research in economics in preparation for studies at the doctoral level. Begun in 1974, the program will be hosted at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM from 2012 to 2014.

The AEA Summer Program is open to all qualified students, regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender. Minority students may also apply for the Minority Scholarship Program which covers costs associated with the program. The summer program is exceptionally demanding. Designed to be taken for either one or two summers, it provides courses in economic theory, mathematics, statistics, econometrics, and research seminars intended to acquaint students with pressing issues and methods of analysis. For students who take the program as a two-summer course, an internet-based policy and research course during the academic year interim is used to maintain content and enable participants to develop individual interests.
   

Benefits: 

Tuition and fees, living expenses, transportation and books cost approximately $10,000. Recipients of Minority Fellowships will have all costs covered by the program.
