EPIC’s Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Program serve as a bridge between college and graduate school to provide those with an interest in economics or another quantitative social science with work experience prior to continuing their education. Fellows serve as Research Assistants for EPIC for one or two year appointments, and work closely with EPIC faculty and staff to conduct data analysis, create presentations, edit research papers, and other tasks as assigned. Upon completing the program, fellows in this or similar positions have gone on to economics Ph.D. programs at Harvard, MIT, The University of Chicago, University of California, Berkeley and similar schools.
The Energy Policy Institute at Chicago (EPIC), with support from the Fuel Freedom Foundation, requests applications for awards to support PhD dissertations at the University of Chicago. Eligible dissertations will be focused on energy policy. Special preference will be given to proposals that focus on the impact of oil consumption on economic activity and welfare and the evolution of transportation technologies and fuels.
Thanks to the generosity of Harris Alumnus John Bartlett, EPIC offers two types of paid fellowships to students at the Harris School of Public Policy:

Fellows have the opportunity to assist EPIC faculty with research and data collection, or to conduct their own research project under faculty guidance in the area of environmental and energy economics and policy. While research will be the main focus of the internship, students will also gain experience with grant and proposal writing, communications, and program coordination on an as-needed basis within the Institute.
