Frederic S. Lee Heterodox Economics Scholarship

The application for the Spring 2021 semester is now open.  

In order to be eligible, students must be enrolled in a doctoral heterodox economics program in the United States and demonstrate financial need. This scholarship will not provide scholarship aid for dissertation credit hours or for credit hours that are not directly relevant for the completion of the doctoral program's coursework.

Selection criteria include:
  • 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.
  • 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:  November 15, 2020. 

To continue to support graduate students who will be the future of Heterodox economics, the Scholarship Fund needs to generate more funds. Donations can be made at
