The Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis offers dissertation internships to Ph.D. students in economics. The internship targets students with strong research interest and scholarly work comparable to those in top research institutions.
The purpose of the internship program is to increase the students’ experience and exposure to scholarly research. Students are expected to make significant progress on their dissertation while at the Bank and are expected to make one formal presentation during their stay.
The students will be expected to interact with the
at the Bank as well as visiting Washington University faculty and various other visiting scholars.
