The Ronald I. McKinnon Memorial Fellowship honors Professor McKinnon’s memory by funding outstanding undergraduate research projects for students declared in economics and writing an honors thesis in international economics, international finance, or economic development.
Awards prioritize projects requesting coverage of direct research costs, e.g., travel, field expenses, and data acquisition.
Funds awarded typically do not exceed $5,000 and must be spent within six months of the award. If the project involves human subjects, funds will not be disbursed until grantees obtain IRB approval.
The 2018-19 academic year submission deadline will be Sunday, March 3, 2019.
Review the eligibility and budget guidelines, and submit the online application through the Stanford Off-Campus Learning Opportunities website.
