Samuel Arenberg and I started a program to give undergraduates at UT a chance to gain research experience in economics. Selected fellows—it’s rather competitive—are paired with a PhD student based on research interests. It’s a great opportunity for undergraduates to get familiar with a literature, pick up some coding skills, or just observe the fascinating lives of graduate students. The program runs every semester, including a summer session. Check the Economics Department’s undergraduate newsletters for application deadlines and instructions and feel free to contact us with questions. You can also visit our fundraising page for more information, including sponsorship opportunities.
