2015 CSMGEP Dissertation Session at the AEA Meetings

The AEA’s Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession (CSMGEP) will again sponsor a dissertation session at the AEA meetings next year (January 3-5, 2015) in Boston, MA. This is a great opportunity for graduate students from underrepresented minority groups (U.S. citizens or permanent residents) who are close to finishing the dissertation and planning to be on the job market in AY 2014-15 or those who just earned their degrees in AY 2013-14.

Participants will present their work in the CSMGEP dissertation session and CSMGEP will pay directly for each presenter’s airfare, hotel accommodations, and conference registration fees associated with attending the meetings. Note that papers presented at the AEA must have at least one coauthor who is an AEA member, but individuals may become members once they are notified of being selected for participation in the CSMGEP dissertation session.

If you know of a student or recent graduate who fits this description and would like to participate in the CSMGEP dissertation session at the AEA meetings in 2015, please contact Francisca Antman at francisca.antman (at) colorado (dot) edu . Nominations (including self-nominations) will be accepted until June 2, 2014.
