Since 1974, the AEA Summer Training Program and Scholarship Program have increased diversity by preparing talented undergraduates for doctoral programs in Economics and related disciplines. AEASP is a prestigious and successful program that uniquely enables students to develop and solidify technical skills in preparation for the rigors of graduate studies. As many as 20% of PhDs awarded to minorities in economics over the past 20 years are graduates of the program. All students receive 8 weeks of intensive training in microeconomics, math, econometrics and research methods with leading faculty. At 3 credits per class, students have the opportunity to earn 12 college credits.
