Graduate Fellowship 
This is a program for graduate students (including Ph.D., Master's, and JD), to work on their dissertation or thesis and write a paper under the mentorship of a PERC senior fellow. We are looking for students working on a well-defined empirical natural resource or environmental economics topic. A monthly stipend is provided as well as travel expenses.
"PERC's Graduate Fellowship has been extremely valuable in opening me up to other research and like-minded professionals that have been valuable in my growth. I am extremely grateful for everything PERC does. My mentors have exceeded my expectations and the Program Director has done an amazing job choosing mentors and providing mentorship of his own."- 2019 Graduate Student
Applications due March 1, 2020 - Student Summit - This program is designed for undergraduate students who want to take a rigorous look at how markets and property rights enhance conservation. Students will interact with experts in the field and have the opportunity to explore Montana's Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
"By taking a stance on free market environmentalism, PERC has crafted a unique program to reach out to others and teach them that there are a variety of solutions when tackling issues in the environment. To say that the program widened my perspective would be an understatement."
