Applications are invited for our graduate scholarship programme.
The IFS runs an annual Graduate Scholarship Programme which finances one or more students to undertake research leading to a degree of Ph.D. The scholarship is payable at the ESRC rate, currently £15,590 p.a. and fees will be paid.
IFS Scholars, who will be expected to have already been awarded a Masters degree, will register as full-time students at the Department of Economics, University College London and will have access to the extensive research facilities of IFS and UCL.
At IFS they will be associated with the ESRC Centre for Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy (CPP). IFS has established an international reputation in Microeconometrics and Empirical Microeconomics research and its relation to policy issues and your research should be relevant to these areas.
In addition a further Scholar will be located in the ESRC Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (cemmap), a leading international centre for development of econometric methods.
Please send a CV to email@example.com including details of two academic referees together with a brief outline of your proposed research (no more than three pages).
