Application procedure

To apply, send a curriculum vita, a statement (maximum three pages) describing both your current research and your interest in behavioral economics, and two letters of recommendation from faculty advisors. Letters of recommendation should be as informative as possible about your standing in the program, general ability, research potential, and (if applicable) special interest in behavioral economics. All applications must include an e-mail and mailing address.
We cannot accept e-mail applications; please, paper applications only.
Applications and letters should be sent by mail/courier to: Economics Team / Economics Department / Littauer Building / Harvard University / Cambridge, MA 02138-3001. (The official address for courier delivery is 1875 Cambridge Street, and the phone number is 617.495.8326.)
We strongly prefer letters to be included in the application package, but if unavoidable they can be sent separately to as the text of the message or pfd attachments.
