The Master of Arts in Economics Program offers a limited number of merit-based scholarships to incoming students on a competitive basis. There is no separate application for these one-time scholarships, which are limited in number, vary in amount, and cover only part of tuition costs. If a scholarship is awarded, it will be indicated in the admission letter sent by the Economics program. All students admitted to the Economics graduate program are considered for these scholarships during the admission decision process.
