Scholarships for the Graduate Program in Economics and Finance

CEMFI, Madrid (Spain)

At CEMFI we train students for careers as professional or academic economists. Our graduates acquire the quantitative tools and research skills to work as economists in business, finance, government, and academia.

The basic graduate offering at CEMFI is its highly prestigious Master in Economics and Finance. Unlike many Master programs in the US and elsewhere, ours is self-contained and offers a well respected qualification.

CEMFI grants a subset of its Master students exemptions from the tuition fee and/or scholarships for living expenses amounting up to EUR 10,000 per year. They are granted according to academic merit. In previousyears, the Fundación Carolina, in cooperation with the Fundación BBVA, has endowed several scholarships for Latin American students of the Master. If new grants are endowed, they will be announced on CEMFI’s web page.

An important distinguishing feature of our Master is that it lasts for two years, the second being essential for shaping the skills of our graduates. The first year consists of basic graduate coursework and some optional subjects. The second year includes specialized courses and research training through a Master thesis. Our ratio of students to faculty is between four and five. Thus we can devote a lot of attention to each student. This is particularly important for the Master thesis, where the faculty provides guidance to a unique degree.

Members of CEMFI’s faculty publish in top journals and are research leaders in their fields. They are also editors of prestigious journals and are key players at leading learned societies such as the European Economic Association and the Econometric Society.

Our Master students get very good jobs as economists. For example, in positions dealing with portfolio and risk management, macroeconomic forecasting, policy evaluation, or microeconomic consultancy. CEMFI has been building a reputation for more than 20 years and a degree from
CEMFI provides a strong signal of quality, regularly confirmed by the market. Moreover, we run an experienced and efficient job placement service.

Students interested in furthering their research training, either because they aim for a professional career with a stronger research content or because they aim for an academic position, will continue to develop their research skills for another three years and complete the
PhD program. Graduates from CEMFI’s PhD program have published papers from their dissertation in top journals and we have an excellent record in the PhD job market.

Admission to the PhD program at CEMFI is through the Master. All students admitted to the PhD program obtain a scholarship, either from an external source or from CEMFI. For more information on admission and scholarship applications, please visit: http://www.cemfi.es. For any queries, feel free to contact: admissions@cemfi.es.

Application has to be received by 6. April 2009.

Description: The
Wesleyan Freeman Asian Scholarship Program provides expenses for a
four-year course of study toward a bachelors degree for twenty-two
exceptionally able Asian students annually from these countries and
regions: the Peoples Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan,
Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand,
and Vietnam.

Wesleyan is now accepting applications for
participation in the Wesleyan Freeman Asian Scholarship Program.
Twenty-two (22) qualified young men and women will be selected, two (2)
from each of eleven countries and regions The Peoples Republic of
China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines,
Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. The chosen
applicants will join 2,700 other Wesleyan undergraduates from
throughout the United States and nearly 50 countries for study with an
outstanding teaching and research faculty in the sciences and
mathematics, the arts, the humanities, and the social and behavioral
This program is made possible by Wesleyan University
and the Freeman Foundation, which aims to improve understanding and to
strengthen ties between the United States and the countries and regions
of the Pacific Rim.
Entry into the Wesleyan Freeman Asian
Scholarship Program is highly competitive: only two students will be
selected annually from each country or region. The scholarship covers
costs for tuition, room, and board for four years, and one-time
transportation to and from the United States.
Wesleyan University
is located in Middletown, Connecticut, halfway between New York and
Boston in the historic and colorful New England region of the
northeastern United States. It is a private, nonsectarian, liberal arts
and sciences institution founded in 1831. A number of early Wesleyan
graduates were influential educators and ministers in Asian countries,
and the modern Wesleyan has formal ties to several prominent
universities in Asia. The campus is home to a diverse population of
2,700 undergraduate students, equally divided between men and women,
approximately 28 percent of whom are of African, Asian, or Hispanic
descent, and nearly 160 students from foreign countries.
190 graduate students, a number of whom are from Asian countries, are
pursuing advanced degrees, principally in the sciences, mathematics,
and music.
Interested students also must submit a
written application that includes background information, two essays, a
secondary school/junior college transcript, recommendations from two
teachers and one counselor, a peer reference, and results of any
standardized national examinations administered during the secondary

Foundation will travel to Asia and conduct interviews of finalists in
their home countries in February or March. All application materials
are to be postmarked no later than January 1. (For students in the
Philippines, we recommend mailing your application earlier or using a
courier service.) Applications are available from secondary
schools/junior colleges and from the AIG offices listed.
You may also write to Dean Terri Overton at toverton@wesleyan. edu to request the special Freeman application forms. The application for
the Freeman Asian Scholarship is different from the Common Application
and it is not available on-line. You should not submit the Common

PhD Studentships in Biology, Sweden

Dental research will be supported within the Graduate School to create
a network between the four Institutions, and research from medical and
other faculties. A key aim is that graduate students will gain insight
into both biomedical and clinical research, which will contribute to
the establishment of a translational research environment.

Within this framework 2 PhD studentships are available at the Center for Oral Biology, to investigate;
Nerve-target interactions in teeth and bone. Neural growth factors and mineralization.

Project 1: Nerve growth factors and mineralization
This project will test the hypothesis that neurotrophic factors, in
addition to their roles in innervation, influence mineralization during
dentinogenesis and osteogenesis. If so, malfunctions associated with
these factors could cause disturbances both in sensory nerve functions
and in hard tissue formation

Project 2: Cellular and biomolecular interactions of osteoadherin with neurotrophic factors
Mineralizing tissue cells are reported to synthesize and secrete
neurotrophic factors, and it has been hypothesized that in addition to
their role in neural development, these factors may influence hard
tissue formation. Candidate molecules for such an interaction include
the small leucine-rich family of proteoglycans (SLRPs), which are
recognized as not only having a part to play in maintaining shape and
providing biomechanical strength to organs and tissues, but also
exhibit direct and indirect cell signaling properties. In turn this can
affect cell recruitment, proliferation, migration and differentiation.
This project will investigate in detail the cellular and biomolecular
interactions of nerve growth factors with the only recognized hard
tissue-specific SLRP reported to date, osteoadherin (OSAD).
