International Fellows Program

About the Program

The GAI International Fellows Program offers a unique opportunity to a small number of competition agency officials, scholars, and practitioners around the world.  Our International Fellows collaborate regularly with GAI faculty, pursue their own research projects, and take advantage of the many opportunities to engage in the antitrust community at Scalia Law School and in the Washington, D.C. area.  International Fellows do not enroll in law school classes.

How to Apply

Applications to the International Fellows Program are reviewed by the GAI faculty on a rolling basis. International Fellows are generally admitted for 1 to 2 semesters of study.  To apply, please send your resume and research proposal to the GAI’s Director of Economic Education, John M. Yun, at jyun9@gmu.edu.

Program tuition is $10,000 per semester. Fellows must obtain a J-1 visa. In some cases, scholarships are available.
