Academic and Student Programs recently caught up with Dr. Daniel D’Amico (an alum of the Mercatus Center PhD Fellowship) to discuss his appointment as Associate Director of the Political Theory Project at Brown University, where he plays an instrumental role in furthering the mission of the Political Theory Project (PTP) to invigorate the study of institutions and ideas that make societies free, prosperous, and fair.
Since graduating from George Mason University in 2004 with a PhD in economics, Dr. Scott Beaulier has been actively engaged in building academic centers, teaching economics, and advancing a science of liberty through academic and policy research.
Mercatus Center PhD Fellowship alumni Shruti Rajagopalan and Liya Palagashvili are part of a thriving economics program at Purchase College, State University of New York, where they are striving to create a flourishing intellectual environment that provides a variety of opportunities for students and faculty to work with and learn from one another.
In the last decade, Mercatus's student and academic programs have grown substantially. This academic year, we are supporting 171 students, both at George Mason University through our PhD, MA, and Joseph Schumpeter Fellowships and worldwide through our Adam Smith and Frédéric Bastiat Fellowships.
