Letter to Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in our graduate program in economics. The Ph.D. program in Economics is a full-time program that admits students with outstanding analytical skills; a strong preparation in mathematics is essential for successful application. Most students in the Ph.D. program receive assistantships that cover tuition and provide stipends.

Applicants who want to be considered for financial assistance must apply by January 1, 2016.  Applications are available via the Graduate School's webpage at http://grad.georgetown.edu/

In addition, beginning in the Fall of 2015, all students will be considered for the Maloof Fellowship which provides stipend support without any teaching obligations. The Maloof Fellowship will be awarded with preference for students of Lebanese or more generally of Middle Eastern descent.

The Graduate School catalogue, the Ph.D. Program brochure, are available electronically at the world wide web sites noted below. Through the web, you will find all the information you need about our program and the requirements for admissions. If you would like the paper copies of our materials, please contact the Graduate School.

Please send application materials directly to the Graduate Admissions Office. Please DO NOT send e-mail to individual faculty members.

Once again, thank you for your interest in Georgetown University; we look forward to receiving your application.
