George Mason University has a new program for people who want a Masters in economics — not a Ph.d. — and wish to apply their knowledge to the so-called real world. The value of the scholarship award is up to $80,000 (over two years); more information, including contact information, is here. The application deadline is March 15. Good bloggers, by the way, tend to be good teachers. Just think, if reading us for free is worthwhile, if the non-convexities are not too severe being paid to hang out with us is maybe not so terrible either.
