Academic Scholarships for Talented Students

About Our Goal


About Us

BAUM Tenpers Research Institute is an independent research and training organization whose three major objectives are to:

  • Conduct interdisciplinary research that uncovers new economic insights for knowledge advancement and optimal policy decision making
  • Organize capacity building programs for individuals looking to acquire the necessary skills to successfully embark on a PhD in economics, finance, statistics, applied mathematics, and related disciplines
  • Offer academic scholarships to outstanding low-income students

Our Programs

Our Certificate Program in Econometrics, Economic Theory, and Mathematical Economics at Baum Tenpers is a not-for-profit preparatory program designed for students planning to pursue an economics or related PhD and need a rigorous exposure to graduate-level work. The program grew out of the need to support the academic potential of bright students who cannot afford to enroll in similar graduate programs at traditional universities due to limited resources.

Capacity Building

Capacity building is at the heart of what we do. To achieve this, we identify talented students through a rigorous selection process. We then match them to our affiliated researchers for a period of mentorship that lasts for 6 to 24 months. Students work as predoctoral researchers during this period, which positions them to learn and improve their research skills. They also participate in our certificate training program to prepare them for graduate school.

Partnerships for Success


We partner with individuals, academic institutions, and policy institutes, and collaborate with researchers worldwide to engage in theoretical and empirical research that answers important questions and unlocks insights for tackling the problems of poverty and capital markets underdevelopment that are inimical to economic advancement in some of the poorest regions of the world. 

Our senior research fellows work in a variety of research fields, so students can be certain to get matched to research mentors with expertise in areas that interest students.
