Selection criteria include:

  1. Priority will be given to students who have no scholarship support at all and need the support to continue in their heterodox doctoral program. Students who have only partial scholarship support and need additional support to continue in their heterodox doctoral program will also be considered.
  2. Preference will be given to students who are interested in working in heterodox microeconomics. Applicants from other fields of study are also encouraged to apply, especially if they are willing to do heterodox economics in an integrative manner (as opposed to adhering to a single heterodox tradition).

Scholarships will be awarded prior to the fall and spring semesters on an annual basis.

Scholarships are not renewable; however, previous recipients may reapply.

Amount: Varies. Tuition and fees for up to three classes per semester.

Application Deadline: May 15 and November 15
