Graduate Student Invited Sessions

A number of sessions at the 2019 meetings of the Southern Economic Association, to be held at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, FL on November 23-25, 2019 (Saturday to Monday) are designated as graduate student sessions.  These sessions provide an opportunity for graduate students to present their scholarly work and to receive feedback from members of the organization who hold professional positions.  Each southern university with a Ph.D. program in Economics is invited to select one advanced graduate student, preferably a student who will be on the job market, to participate in one of the sessions designed for graduate students.  The graduate students selected will each receive a $100 cash award, a one year complimentary student membership in the Southern Economic Association, and a complimentary 2019 conference registration.

The Department Head or Graduate Coordinator simply needs to provide the name and email address of the graduate student selected to represent their department to Art Goldsmith via email at  The graduate student selected should send a word file containing an abstract, with less than 200 words, of the paper they plan to present along with their complete contact information (postal mail address, email address, and phone numbers) by July 1, 2019 to Art Goldsmith.
