Funding Opportunities for Graduate School

bigstock-Piggy-Bank-With-Glasses-And-Bl-117214469.jpg

Financing graduate study in economics is often done in conjunction with the student's PhD program. Most graduate school funding is not need-dependent, but instead tends to be merit-dependent.

Funding is generally awarded in the form of fellowships, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships. Different programs award funding for different durations. According to the study, " Attrition in Economics Ph.D. Programs ," (Stock, Finegan, and Siegfried, 2006), about 80 percent of the incoming class of economics PhD students at a representative sample of PhD programs were awarded financial aid during their first year of graduate study. The largest proportion of these was in the form of fellowships (which generally have no work requirement). The second most common financial aid was in the form of teaching and/or research assistantships (which generally include a work requirement).

Securing some form of aid and receiving a fellowship are more common among students enrolled at top-tier programs.

  • Eligibility
  • FY24 Events

The  World Bank 's  Robert S. McNamara Fellowships Program (RSMFP)  matches aspiring development economics researchers from developing countries with World Bank research economists, creating unique opportunities for the fellows to participate in rigorous policy-relevant research in the World Bank’s  Development Economics  Vice Presidency (DEC). Fellows will be hosted at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. for 8 months (September to May each year) and work under the supervision of researchers in the World Bank’s Development Impact (DIME) and Development Research Group departments, engaging in high-quality and policy-relevant research projects.

By working with World Bank DEC researchers and their external academic collaborators from top universities, fellows will learn current research standards, acquire new econometric skills, and network with leading researchers in their field. They will have a unique opportunity to participate in rigorous policy-relevant research and widen their perspective on potential development questions, and how their research can address challenges in the developing world.

The applications for the 2024 cohort are now closed.

Key Program Features

Professional experience : Fellows will work on World Bank projects under the direct supervision of World Bank DEC researchers and will be offered training on cutting-edge research practices and technologies and engage with the World Bank operations. Depending on the nature of projects, fellows may contribute to DEC’s published work, co-author with DEC researchers, join field missions, or directly engage with World Bank clients.

Capacity building :  Fellows will receive a one-week technical onboarding at the start of the program, including training on reproducible research practices. During the program, fellows will participate in hands-on trainings and seminars by top economist, to further build skills. Through their work with DEC economists, fellows will enhance their ability to identify, study, and write about important development policy questions.

Research dissemination : Fellows will be invited to write a blog based on their fellowship research within DEC. This is an opportunity to showcase their research and contribution to development policy discussions. Each year, the top 4 blogs will be published on DEC’s  Let's Talk Development  blog.

Compensation & Benefits

The RSMFP offers a competitive compensation, totaling $46,500 net of income taxes for the 2023-24 cohort, per fellow for an 8-month fellowship (paid in monthly installments). Since the fellows will be hosted at the World Bank in Washington D.C., the World Bank’s HR Operations unit will assist the selected candidates with their ap­plication for G4 visa.

Note:  The fellowship does not cover travel expenses.

The RSMFP was established in 1982 by a resolution of the Executive Directors to award fellowships to young researchers to study in the fields related to economic development. Funding for the program was initially provided by the Governments of Bangladesh, China, India, Kuwait, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru and former Yugoslavia.

The RSMFP governance includes a Steering Committee, Selection Committee and a Secretariat. The Steering Committee, comprised of representatives from the World Bank Executive Director offices of the donor countries, meets annually to review progress. The Selection Committee, comprised of World Bank DEC directors from the research and impact evaluation departments, makes selection decisions based on the selection criteria and fellowships development objectives. The Secretariat supports the Selection Committee in all its work and manages day-to-day operations, prepares policies and procedures, oversees onboarding, and manages development partner relations.

Collaborative PhD Programme

Collaborative PhD Programme (CPP) in Economics for sub-Saharan Africa, along with targeted support for PhD thesis research. The CPP has 8 degree-awarding universities, 4 of which are host degree-awarding and the remaining 4 are non-host degree awarding.

The Collaborative PhD Programme in Economics (CPP), which was launched in 2002, comprises 9 public universities from 7 sub-Saharan African countries. This follows the recent admission of the University of Abomey-Calavi in Benin into CPP as a Non-Host Degree awarding university. The CPP is a product of collaboration across the African continent. It combines coursework and thesis, which is punctuated by periodic thesis research workshops that bring all the students from the participating universities together, to enhance quality of thesis produced by the students.

For purposes of implementing the programme, the continent is subdivided into four regions, Southern Africa, Eastern Africa, Anglophone West Africa and Francophone Africa. The universities are classified into two main categories: the Host-Degree Awarding universities that have been assigned the responsibility of teaching courses in core fields; and the Non-Host Degree Awarding universities that admit and send students to regional host universities to take core courses and thereafter to the Joint Facility for Electives (JFE) to take elective courses, organize the supervision and production of student PhD theses, and award the degrees to successful students.

CPP Academic Activities

The Collaborative PhD Programme is a four-year post-MA doctoral programme by coursework, examination and thesis. The programme has four components:

  • Teaching of Core Courses Component

In the first year of studies, CPP students are offered courses in three core fields ( Microeconomics , Macroeconomics and Quantitative Methods ) at the CPP host-degree awarding universities (host-DAUs). 

  • CPP – Joint Facility for Electives

Upon successfully completing core courses at the host-DAUs, all students are jointly enrolled in their second year of studies for intensive teaching of elective courses by an internationally competitively sourced team of experts for a period of 16 weeks (July to October), at a common facility administered by the AERC – the Joint Facility for Electives (JFE). Each course is divided into two semesters of eight weeks each taught by two different lecturers per subject. Each semester is a complete course with a final examination held at the end of the session. Students select two fields of specializations from among the following approved ten elective courses in addition to a mandatory Research Methods and Computer Applications course:

Approved CPP Core and Elective Courses

The CPP JFE is delivered virtually through live or synchronous lectures via the Zoom platform and AERC’s Learning Management System (LMS), complemented by the AERC eLibrary and MyLoft where textbooks, reference journal articles and lecture materials/notes are easily accessible, and lecture recordings are made available for asynchronous access to lessons by students. The implementation of a virtual rather than a residential CPP JFE has not only broadened reach but also enhanced inclusivity to additional students and network universities other than the traditional CPP DAUs, given that the modality exerts a relatively lower demand on financial and other resources, including physical space and related infrastructural requirements, which are no longer a critical factor.

  • Comprehensive Examinations 

Upon successfully completing coursework, CPP students are required to sit and pass comprehensive examinations in four fields, namely, Microeconomics , Macroeconomics , and two elective fields they selected during the JFE. These examinations are set by teams of experts in the relevant fields under the supervision of the Secretariat and administered at each of the degree-awarding universities of the participating PhD students, with the final examination results being discussed and approved by the PhD Academic Board.  

In third and fourth year of studies, students prepare PhD thesis for defense at their respective degree-awarding university. To further strengthen quality and ensure better integration of research and training, CPP students are competitively invited to present during their third and fourth year of study their proposals and best chapters/papers of their thesis with potential for publication in high-end journals or refereed journals at the AERC’s flagship Biannual Research workshops held annually in May/June and December. This way, the CPP students benefit from the peer review mechanism and from the large pool of international resource people, but more importantly, it is an opportunity to shape them into research and policy analysts. 

AERC awards PhD thesis research grants to the students upon successfully presenting and receiving positive reviews of their proposals from thematic group resource persons at the biannual research workshop. 

The fourth and final year of the Collaborative PhD Programme is devoted to final thesis write-up and defense at the degree-awarding university, in accordance with established respective degree-awarding universities rules and procedures.

For purposes of implementing the programme, the continent is subdivided into four regions, Southern Africa, Eastern Africa, Anglophone West Africa, and Francophone Africa, each having two universities categorized as either a host or a non-host CPP degree awarding university.

Host Degree-Awarding Universities

Each of the four regions have a host degree-awarding university assigned the responsibility of teaching courses in core fields in the first year of studies to students admitted in the regional host and non-host DAUs.

  • University of Cape Town, South Africa
  • University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
  • University of Ibadan, Nigeria
  • University of Yaoundé II, Cameroon
  • Felix Houphouet-Boigny, Côte d’Ivoire

Non-Host Degree-Awarding Universities

Each of the four Non-host DAUs admit students based on agreed criteria and send them to the regional host-DAUs to take core courses.

Students from all the 8 CPP DAUs are jointly taught elective courses at the Joint Facility for Electives (JFE) in their second year of study before finally proceeding to write their PhD thesis and graduate at their respective degree-awarding universities.

  • University of Witwatersrand, South Africa
  • University of Nairobi, Kenya
  • University of Benin, Nigeria
  • University of Abomey-Calavi, Benin

Non-CPP Universities

Other universities on the continent not in the CPP network are referred to as non-CPP DAUs. Other Non-CPP universities offering a doctoral programme with a coursework component are eligible to request AERC’s approval to allow their students to participate virtually in the CPP JFE. The students, must however, abide to all the rules and regulations governing the CPP JFE participation: enrolling for a minimum of two elective courses and a mandatory Research and Computer Applications course; regular class attendance, sitting all JFE examinations as well as the comprehensive examinations.

PhD students from non-CPP universities are also eligible to apply for PhD thesis research grants.

It should also be noted that all universities (including the non-CPP universities) have other avenues of participating in CPP activities like:

  • The participatory teaching of core courses at the host universities.
  • The participatory teaching of the elective courses at the JFE.
  • The training of staff development candidates on the programme under AERC and other sponsorship.
  • The participatory supervision of PhD theses, through PhD workshops and sourcing of supervisors from even the non-DAUs.

All announcements for the Collaborative PhD Programme scholarships are posted in January each year on this website.

Qualifications and Requirements

To qualify, candidates must

  • Have applied and been admitted to any one of the CPP degree-awarding universities.
  • Have attained at Bachelor’s Degree level at least a Second Class Honours (Upper Division) or equivalent in Economics or related field from an accredited university.

Collaborative PhD Programme (CPP)

PhD Thesis Research Grants

The AERC offers the following two types of PhD thesis research grants:

1. PhD Thesis Research Grants for AERC Sponsored CPP Students

The AERC CPP sponsored students, upon successfully completing their coursework, develop PhD thesis research proposals under assigned supervisors at their respective degree-awarding universities. CPP students are invited in their third year of studies, through their respective heads of departments/schools, to submit to the AERC their PhD proposals for presentation in the concurrent thematic groups at the biannual research workshop held annually in May/June and November/December. 

Invitation to present a PhD proposal at the biannual research workshops is not automatic but rather competitive subject to certain quality thresholds based on an independent review of the proposals by thematic resource persons.

PhD proposals that are successfully presented at the biannual research workshop and positively evaluated by thematic groups resource persons are awarded a PhD thesis research grant.

The following constitute the procedure for application and award of PhD thesis research grants:

  • PhD thesis research proposal must have been subjected to the internal review processes of the department/school and approved by its Board of Postgraduate Studies or some such internal mechanism. 
  • The PhD research proposal will be submitted to AERC together with the approval from the Board of Postgraduate Studies and/or a signed forwarding letter from the head of department/school to that effect.
  • The PhD research proposal sent to the AERC will then be subjected to a brief internal review by the AERC Secretariat to check whether it contains the basic research information. 
  • The PhD research proposal will thereafter be sent to thematic group chair to assign a Resource Person to review and provide a short report on its quality or suitability and advising what changes (if any) need to be made before it is suitable for presentation at the biannual research workshop. 
  • The student with guidance from her/his supervisor(s) will be required to adequately address the written comments received from the AERC Resource Person before she/he can be invited to present her/his PhD proposal at the biannual research workshop. 
  • Subject to a positive outcome from stage (v) above, the student accompanied by his/her thesis supervisor will be invited to present his/her PhD proposal at the concurrent session of the biannual research workshop. 
  • If the proposal is rejected for presentation, the Secretariat will provide a written report that will detail the reasons for such rejection and which shall also be shared with the specific student through his/her head of department. The rejected proposal will not be eligible for award of PhD thesis research grant.
  • Upon presenting PhD research proposals at the concurrent sessions of the biannual research workshops, students accompanied by their supervisors will be invited to the technical sessions to explain how they intend to address the comments received during the proposal presentation. This is a typical step under the Thematic Research.
  • The thematic group chairs will present their recommendations on the eligibility of the proposals to be awarded PhD thesis research grants to the Programme Sub-Committee, which will be presented for consideration and final approval by the Programme Committee.  
  • The comments and recommendations received during the concurrent and technical sessions will be sent through the heads of departments/schools to the students and their supervisors to address as they proceed to field work stage of dissertation.  
  • Letters of award of PhD thesis research grants will be offered to students who have adequately addressed comments received during the concurrent session of the biannual. The awarded grants will no longer be standardized but varied in terms of value or amount to encourage innovativeness and quality enhancements. Special attention will be given to research in frontier and emerging areas.
  • Disbursement of PhD thesis research grant will be in three installments subject to achieving stipulated milestones.

2. PhD Thesis Research Grants for Non-AERC Sponsored African Nationals

The AERC also offers semi-annually PhD thesis research grants to non-AERC sponsored African nationals enrolled in a doctoral degree programme in Economics at a recognized university within or outside the African continent, to facilitate thesis research on issues pertinent to economic policy in sub-Saharan Africa.

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must have registered in a doctoral degree programme in Economics at a recognized university, completed all course requirements for the degree and be in the research and/or writing phase of the dissertation. In addition, applicants should not have received any other funding to support the dissertation activities outlined in the PhD proposal/budget. Priority is given to candidates pursuing a career in economic management, research and/or teaching at a public institution in sub-Saharan Africa.

Requests should be supported by the following documentation:

  • Evidence of registration in a recognized PhD programme in Economics.
  • A copy of approved research proposal, complete with clearly defined objectives, substantial literature review, a well‐outlined analytical framework as well as pertinent research methodology. The limitations and policy relevance of the study should also be addressed.
  • A letter of reference from the thesis supervisor.
  • A description of the plan of work for the thesis research including details of fieldwork and write-up.

Upon the receipt of the proposal and the supporting documentation, it is sent to two external reviewers, who comment on the adequacy of the proposal. If the reviewers suggest corrections to be made and give positive feedback, the comments are sent to the students to incorporate and then resubmit the revised proposal for a final review. Once the proposal is cleared by at least two reviewers, it is presented together with the comments from the external reviewers to the Programme Sub-Committee during the Biannual Research Workshops (held in June and December), who go through the recommendations of the reviewers and make recommendation to the Programme Advisory Committee of AERC to approve for funding. It is after this that research grants can be awarded.

6 Canadian PhD scholarships for international students in 2022

Canada

There are many excellent countries for international students wishing to pursue their PhD studies on a scholarship. Canada is one of them – it has been voted the most attractive study destination by agents in the 2021 survey , thanks to how well the Trudeau administration took care of international students at the height of the pandemic last year.

Canada is well-known for being a safe, stable, open and welcoming country as well. In the same 2021 survey, Canada emerged as tops for safety and openness – factors that are critical to all migrants seeking a life in a foreign land, especially for international students.

Understandably, a PhD can involve great costs since it takes on average three to four years to complete; if you are an international student, from a country with less global spending power, living and travel costs, will add up too.

Fortunately, Canada has several scholarships that can help alleviate these, offered by provinces and universities alike – both provincial and university-specific ones. We round up a list of six Canadian PhD scholarships to help you start your application for the 2022 academic year.

Ontario Trillium Scholarship – Western University

The Ontario Trillium Scholarship (OTS) aims to attract outstanding candidates to come to Ontario for their PhD studies. Particularly, if you want to apply to Western University , you should express your interest to the graduate programme chair (Director or Associate Dean) of your admitting programme in order to be nominated for the OTS.

To be eligible for applying, you should be an international student, be willing to be physically present at the university at the time of studies, is not registered with any other Canadian institution, have an excellent academic record and research experience, and need to have achieved a minimum of 80% in two of your most recent years of full-time study. You may be required to demonstrate English language proficiency as well.

Successful applicants starting their PhD programme will get 40,000 Canadian dollars each year, which can be renewed for up to four years.

University of Alberta

Next on the list of Canadian PhD scholarships is the University of Alberta Graduate Entrance scholarship . Located in Alberta, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research at  University of Alberta disburses around CA$26 million in scholarships every year. 

If you plan to register for doctoral studies at the University of Alberta, you are eligible for this one-off Graduate Entrance scholarship worth CA$21,000. This may commence either on Jan. 1 or Sep. 1, and cannot be renewed at all.

You are allowed to hold any number of University of Alberta awards concurrently with this scholarship but not the Tri-Council Top-up awards at the same time. Examples include the Walter H Johns Graduate Fellowship and President’s Doctoral Prize of Distinction and the Graduate Entrance 14 Scholarship tuition fee top up at the same time.

University of Montreal

The third Canadian PhD scholarship offering is administered by the University of Montreal in Quebec. Ranked 88th in the world (Times Higher Education ranking 2022) and fourth in Canada for volume of research activities, this university attracts over 45,000 students out of which 8,500 are international.

In addition to the Doctoral Scholarship (CA$7,000 – renewable once, for students who have done their master’s degree at this university), you can apply for the Mackenzie King Scholarship (CA$8,500 for one year – application deadline is Feb. 1, 2022). You can submit an application for the University of Montreal exemption grant (ranging from CA$ 2,078.10 to CA$12,465.60 depending on your academic record, no separate application needed) as well.

For more information on other scholarships, you may check out the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies page.

University of British Columbia

One of the top 20 public universities in the world, the University of British Columbia is ranking 37th by the Times Higher Education rankings 2022, and one of three Canadian universities to make it to the top 50. Over 56,000 students study at the University’s two campuses in the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver.

For students wanting to do a PhD at this University, the Four Year Doctoral Fellowship (4YF) is an outstanding choice. You will receive CA$18,200 as your annual stipend, and full tuition coverage for up to four years of your PhD studies.

You can apply to your preferred Graduate Programme; all PhD applicants are qualified to apply for this Scholarship. Upon selecting the best applicants, the Graduate Programme will inform Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies about their choices.

University of Lethbridge

Located in Southern Alberta, the University of Lethbridge is one of Canada’s top three research universities, a record they have held for the past four consecutive years. The University is ranked among the 6% of world universities for research performance as well.

That is why the University of Lethbridge Graduate Research Award has been designed for incoming graduate applicants of all disciplines except Education. With a value up to CA$21,000, you can combine this Award with the Graduate Assistantship and/or any Research Stipend provided by a Faculty Member, but not with other scholarships such as the Dean’s Scholarship.

University of Windsor

The University of Windsor is the final university on this list of Canadian PhD scholarships. As a comprehensive university located in Canada’s southernmost city overlooking the Detroit River, the University of Windsor offers their 16,000 students a wide variety of courses.

PhD applicants can apply for the Graduate Entrance Scholarship worth CA$7,500 for up to four years. This Scholarship has three application deadlines: the first day of January, May and September – you must have achieved a minimum of 80% average as well.

Other awards for international PhD applicants include the Ontario Graduate Scholarship . Depending on how many months you have completed your PhD studies at the time of application, you may receive up to CA$15,000 (three terms of CA$5,000 each) of funding – the application deadline is Jan. 12, 2022.

All in all, these are great Canadian PhD scholarships if you are an international student looking to start your PhD studies in safe and stable Canada in 2022.

Eight Graduate Students Receive Wu Scholarships

Graduate School

By | Katya Hrichak , Cornell University Graduate School

Eight graduate students were awarded 2022 Hsien and Daisy Yen Wu Scholarships. These awards provide recipients with funds to help with any aspect of doctoral study, from research expenses to living expenses.

This year’s recipients are: Shiping Cao, mathematics; Yue Deng, materials science and engineering; Shan-Chi Hsieh, microbiology; Zihan Hu, economics; Hui Ji, genetics, genomics, and development; Yubo Su, astronomy and space sciences; Yongjian Tang, physics; and Hui Zhou, applied economics and management.

2022 wu scholars

The Wu Scholarship was established by Daisy Yen Wu in memory of Hsien Wu, parents of the late Cornell professor Ray Wu, to recognize graduate students for their academic ability, performance, character, and financial need. Students become eligible to receive the award after completing a minimum of three semesters of study in a doctoral program with preference given to students beyond their second year.

“I am grateful for being recognized,” said Ji. “This award will greatly encourage me as I advance my career as a researcher to the next level.”

For Ji and Tang, scholarship funds will support attendance at additional conferences, introducing them to potential new research topics and encouraging collaborations with individuals across academia and industry. Su and Deng look forward to upgrading personal devices to best support their research.

“My current laptop is so outdated now that it can barely handle my daily computational needs,” said Deng. “This financial support provided by the Hsien and Daisy Yen Wu Scholarship allows me to upgrade to a more advanced model, which will greatly improve my work quality and efficiency.”

The Wu Scholarship is one of several that the Graduate School administers each year for continuing students. Other awards include Provost Diversity Fellowships for Advanced Doctoral Students and the Africa Fund.

“This year’s Wu Scholars demonstrate outstanding academic excellence and commitment to their scholarly pursuits,” said Kathryn J. Boor, dean of the Graduate School and vice provost for graduate education. “The Wu Scholarship is one of many ways we recognize excellence among our graduate students.”
