RED offers 4-year scholarships (plus a one-year extension for star students) and tuition waivers on an academic-merit basis

The Rome Economics Doctorate (RED) is a new Ph.D. program in Economics run by EIEF, Luiss and University of Rome Tor Vergata.

RED is a challenging and selective Ph.D. program for highly talented students with an advanced MSc-level background in Economics. Courses and supervision are held by world-renowned scholars in a stimulating and international research environment.

RED offers:

  • intensive specialized courses, workshops and reading groups
  • tailored supervision and tutoring by leading researchers, active at the frontier of knowledge
  • four-year scholarships, plus a one-year extension for star students
  • possibility of an exchange semester in selected economics departments
  • an international faculty and interaction with world-class visiting scholars

The first year is devoted to a sequence of advanced courses that would give students an overview of frontier research, and allow them to select their area of specialization. These courses are offered mostly by resident faculty, plus some visiting researchers. Students are required to present regularly their research in internal workshops, to discuss frontier research in reading groups, and attend seminars.

Application for the A.Y. 2021/22 is now open.

A prerequisite for participating in the program is a MSc university degree in Economics or equivalent. Interested candidates should submit their application by February 28, 2021. Promising applicants will be invited to an interview. Since RED is a small program, early application is strongly encouraged. Selected applicants will receive offers sequentially, pending the formal admission granted by Luiss and University of Rme Tor Vergata in April/May 2021.

Additional information on the program and the application process can be obtained on the RED website.
