Selected students will support a multi-year research project on the drivers and impacts of large-scale foreign land acquisitions for agriculture while completing SDSU’s 2-year MA program starting Fall of 2023. Students will conduct a mix of guided and independent research on the topic and receive free in-state tuition and 20 hours per week of paid employment as research assistants. Ideal candidates would be interested in eventually pursuing a Ph.D. in Economics, Agricultural Economics, or Geography and would have experience working with data in R or Stata.
