Financial Support/Grants

The Association offers the following financial support to its members

Conference Sponsorship

The Association invites applications for funding towards the costs of organizing conferences which are intended as a forum for disseminating research in applied econometrics.  

The funding is offered as part of Association’s remit to advancing and supporting research in the field of Applied Econometrics, and disseminating the results of such useful research to the public. In most cases the Association anticipates that it will provide partial funding of up to US$3,000.

A successful application will, in general, be based upon a conference designed to attract experts in their respective fields. There are no geographical restrictions. Conferences that provide externalities to a large number of researchers are good candidates, as are smaller conferences with high impact in the field of Applied Econometrics. Conferences that have open call for papers are preferred. Applications should be sent at least 6 months before the Conference date.

It is particularly hoped that the grant will be used to help young researchers to present their work at conferences rather than to support travelling expenses for keynote speakers.

Funds are granted on the condition that the contribution is acknowledged in the conference programme and publicity material and in any published proceedings which might follow.

Further details may be obtained from the Association, and applications should be made in writing to the same place.  Please see our Contact page for more details.

Requests are invited from all areas of applied econometrics.
