Full Text of JOE Listing:

To encourage research on comparative economics and to recognize the fundamental contributions of Gerard Roland to the field, the Association for Comparative Economic Studies (ACES) has established the Gerard Roland Pre-Doctoral Dissertation fellowship.

The fellowship will be awarded for a one-year period. Applications for the 2021-2022 fellowship are now being accepted through April 15, 2021.

Fellowship recipients are expected to pursue academic research that is primarily related to:
i) development/transition economics; ii) comparative institutions; iii) political economy; and
iv) economics of culture. Other topics emphasizing theory, methods or implications of comparative economics are accepted too. Students working in related fields are encouraged to apply.

One fellowship will be awarded for the academic year 2021-2022. The fellowship will provide a stipend of $35,000 and, $5,000 to support the costs of data acquisition and travel to research meetings, and will cover the fellow’s tuition at his or her home institution, up to a limit of $14,000 for the academic year. Awards will be announced by the end of June 15, 2021. Fellows will be expected, to the extent possible, to make data collected for their research publicly available.
