Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Department of Economics: Summer RA Program 

Please note: The Summer RA Program will NOT be offered Summer 2024.

Participants work directly with faculty on their ongoing research, receiving substantive supervision and training by the professor, in line with the goal of enriching the student learning experience and preparing students to do their own research.


Participants must be current undergraduates at Stanford. Preference will be given to students who have declared Economics as their major and are completing their junior year, although sophomores with exceptionally strong academic records are also welcome to apply. Applicants should be on track to meet the Economics Department’s GPA threshold requirements for Honors (that is, achieving a GPA of 3.5 or higher for the courses required of an Economics major).


Each RA’s forty-hour workweek will be devoted to research work under the direction of the faculty sponsor, to organized Program activities, and (if the supervisor approves) to the exploration of independent research topics.
