Women In Economics Travel Scholarship

By Caleb Taylor

Are you a woman majoring in economics?

If so, you should consider attending the Second Annual Women in Economics Symposium on Feb. 28, 2019 sponsored by and hosted at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. 

Participants will discuss issues and opportunities in the field of economics. In addition to networking and discussing career options over hors d’oeuvres, the event will offer a review of research and data on women in economics; panels and discussion sessions featuring women from various career fields who majored in economics; and unique perspectives from leaders in the field.  

Featured speakers include:

  • Loretta Mester, President and Chief Executive Officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
  • Amanda Bayer, Professor of Economics at Swarthmore College, and a leading researcher on the topic of diversity in economics
  • Kate Warne, principal and investment strategist at Edward Jones

The Arkansas Center for Research in Economics will be providing travel scholarships to Arkansas students interested in attending this symposium. These scholarships cover the costs of transportation and lodging.
