Undergraduate Research Fellowship

Bagwell Center for the Study of Markets and Economic Opportunity Undergraduate Research Fellowship

Bagwell Fellowship Spring 2022

The Bagwell Center for the Study of Markets and Economic Opportunity (Bagwell Center) Research Fellowship is open to undergraduate students from any discipline or program across Kennesaw State University’s campuses. The Fellowship seeks to engage students in the academic conversation about the impact of market institutions on society. Fellows will work with a faculty advisor and Dr. Timothy Mathews (Bagwell Center Director) to produce a paper suitable for publication on the Bagwell Center webpage. In addition to producing a paper, fellows will also be expected to present their original research at a symposium on KSU’s Kennesaw campus during the Spring semester. The fellowship offers a total stipend of $1,500 per year. Fellows are also encouraged to apply for funding opportunities from the Bagwell Center to attend and present their research at academic conferences.

The Bagwell Center is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 academic year. Priority consideration will be given to those applications received by July 22, 2022. The final deadline to apply is August 26, 2022. To apply, please fill out the form below.

For full consideration, all research proposals must align with the Bagwell Center’s mission.

Bagwell Center for the Study of Markets and Economic Opportunity Mission:
The primary objective of the Bagwell Center is to make Kennesaw State University (KSU) students (and other interested individuals from the broader community) aware of the critical relations between free-market institutions, individual choice, and realized economic outcomes (for both individuals and society as a whole). Acquiring an understanding of these issues is critical for someone to become an educated citizen who can ultimately have a constructive impact on influencing or formulating public policy for the benefit of the community.
