About The Program
The Predoctoral Research in Economics program (PREP) is intended to serve as a bridge between college and graduate school for students interested in empirical economics. The program offers unique research and professional training opportunities at the University of Chicago.
Life At BFI / UChicago
In addition to working closely with faculty as research assistants, predoctoral research professionals typically attend classes and seminars at BFI and affiliate institutions. Additional opportunities include a rigorous customized orientation workshop, annual career development retreat, and individual mentorship.
