1. Summer Internship opportunity in Japan

Attention students and recent graduates!

We are launching the 3rd Annual Come on Out-Japan Summer Internship Program and extending our invitation to top Universities and Japanese high school students for a cross-cultural learning experience.

We will be holding an info session on campus on Thursday, December 1, 2016 from 3 - 5 pm at BUNCHE HALL ROOM 11372 and hope to see you there.  Drop in anytime!

See the Facebook Event page for further details:


We are currently seeking University students and recent graduates with native level English skills, who would be interested in coming to Japan for 6 weeks from mid-July to late August, 2017. Although this is an unpaid internship, the sponsor is providing certain expenses for each Intern who participates in the six-week program. In addition to airfare, lodging, meal and transportation subsidies, the program offers optional Japanese language classes, field trips, dinner/cooking nights and at least one overnight trip. These additional opportunities are all designed to add cultural enrichment to your summer abroad experience.

This program is truly different from any other traditional teaching positions in Japan. Interns will facilitate English conversations with Japanese high school students on a variety of relevant global topics. Outside of the class, Interns will have space in their schedule to fulfill their personal goals and cultural exploration.

We do not have any Japanese fluency requirements and accept undergraduate, graduate and recent graduate students.

See links below for more information. If you have additional questions regarding the program, please contact Come on Out-Japan directly or via our inquiry tab on our website.

2. Tulane University Ph.D. program in Economic Analysis and Policy

Tulane's Department of Economics invites applications to its Ph.D. program in Economic Analysis and Policy for fall 2017. The deadline for admission is February 1, 2017.


The program is based in the Economics Department, but has important partnerships with other departments at Tulane to foster our interdisciplinary approach to doctoral education.

Our program is relatively new. It is small and highly selective, with a strong applied focus.

Our cross campus partners include the Freeman School of Business, the Stone Center for Latin

American Studies, the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, the Department of Earth

and Environmental Sciences, the Murphy Institute of Political Economy, the Disaster Resilience

Leadership Academy, and the Computer Science Department’s Artificial Intelligence program.

Generous fellowships are available and will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and

potential for scholarship. Graduates will make excellent candidates for employment in

universities, government, multilateral organizations, the private sector, and the non-profit sector.


Applicants should have a B.A. or B.S. degree. An undergraduate major in economics is desirable

but not necessary. Applicants should have a strong mathematics background, including one

semester of matrix algebra and at least one year of calculus.
