Special Application Requirements/Information

The GRE General Test is required for the Ph.D. program. A strong background in economics is also required. The Ph.D. program prefers applicants with a solid background in mathematics.

Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis, and will be reviewed throughout the year. Preference in scholarship awards will be for those applicants who meet the early application deadline.

For more information about scholarship awards, please consult the TC Office of Financial Aid website.  Please note that our program is a preferred partner program for the Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program.  The program has several eligibility requirements, however.  You can find more information about this scholarship program on the TC Financial Aid website, under Merit-Based Aid/External Scholarships, and on the Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship program website.
