The Department of Economics encourages economics majors to apply for the Jamie Baxter and Helen Monchow Scholarships. The Monchow Fund provides financial support for either a research project or an internship. The Baxter Fund subsidizes internships.  All applications submitted to the Universal Application Form by Economics majors and minors will be first considered for funding by Baxter and/or Monchow where appropriate.  Applications that are either partially funded or unfunded will then be passed to other College sources (e.g., MHC Summer Research funds, CDC internship funds, etc.) for further consideration.  Average awards from Baxter and Monchow have been in the range of $1,000 but these are usually further augmented by funds from other College sources. Applications for either scholarship should be submitted through the universal application form. The scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis among sophomores and juniors (and, in exceptional cases, first year students).  It is anticipated that the department will notify scholarship recipients by April 1.

Students with an interest in Economics major are encouraged to research and develop their own internship opportunity.
