In this complex and rapidly changing world, now more than ever ideas have consequences. Mercatus Master's Fellows know that ideas grounded in sound economics hold special promise.
The Mercatus Center Master's Fellowship Program is a competitive fellowship program for students in George Mason University's MA economics program who are interested in pursuing an advanced degree in applied economics in preparation for a career in business or public policy.

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is a non-profit education and research organization that works with scholars, policy experts, and government officials to bridge economic theory with real-world practice. Mercatus professional development programs are designed to teach economic tools and analytical frameworks that promote innovative approaches to public policy problems.
