Carroll Round at Georgetown University

23 Jan

Carroll Round is the annual international economics conference held at Georgetown University. The Carroll Round provides a unique forum to present and discuss original research among the world’s top undergraduates. The Carroll Round fosters the exchange of ideas among leading undergraduate international economics and political economy students by supporting the pursuit of scholarly innovation in the field.

The annual conference held April 20th-23rd brings together participants, prominent academics, and policy-makers through presentations, discussions, and lectures. The centerpiece of weekend revolves around the presentation and discussion of original research by undergraduates in panels moderated by economics professors and practitioners. Additionally, we hold keynote lectures and events throughout the weekend to provide attendees opportunities to hear from eminent economists, including Nobel Laureates and members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve. One of this year’s speakers will be Jason Furman, outgoing Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, who will discuss his role in shaping economic policy under President Obama.

We are currently seeking submissions of journal-length articles with a priority deadline of February 8th and hoping to release decisions on a rolling basis by March 27th. 2017.

The Carroll Round seeks to cover as much of each participants’ travel and hotel expenses as possible and encourages top undergraduates to join our community of like-minded scholars in presenting their research, meeting and networking with other top undergraduates, and discussing today’s most pressing economic issues with top minds in the field.
