The Mercatus Center at George Mason University calls application for the Adam Smith Fellowship Program 2020 for doctoral candidates. Adam Smith Fellowship is the funding opportunity for graduate students attending Ph.D. programs at any university and in any discipline, including but not limited to economics, philosophy, political science, and sociology.


The Fellowship is to encourage students to critically engage key thinkers in political economy that they might not otherwise encounter during their graduate studies. As such, Adam Smith Fellows spend three weekends during the academic year and one week during the summer participating in workshops and seminars on the Austrian, Virginia, and Bloomington schools of political economy.


Moreover, the successful fellow will receive the award up to $10,000. In addition to that, the award covers a stipend and travel and lodging to attend colloquia in the Mercatus Center. Adam Smith Fellows are eligible to re-apply each year of their studies and are also eligible to apply for conference and research support.

  • Remain enrolled as a degree-seeking doctoral student throughout their participation in the Adam Smith Fellowships Program.
