The Stone PhD Scholarship scheme supports researchers in the early stages of their careers by providing them with academic and financial support for their studies. The Stone PhD Scholars can benefit from the mentorship of the Stone Centre's Co-directors, and from that of the Centre's wider network of Visiting Fellows and Affiliates. This is one way in which the Stone Centre is delivering on its mission to advance the research on, and teaching of wealth concentration and inequality.
The Stone PhD Scholarship scheme is made possible by a matching contribution by UCL.
The IEA promotes personal contacts and mutual understanding among economists in different parts of the world through the organization of scientific meetings, through common research programs, and by means of publications of an international character on problems of current importance.
