Scholarship Criteria:

The NABE Foundation plans to award twenty (20) scholarships to diverse and underrepresented early-career economists and students interested in pursuing a career in applied economics, to attend the following events: the 2022 NABE Foundation Economic Measurement Seminar (July 18-19, Washington, DC); the 2022 NABE Annual Meeting (October 8-11, Chicago, IL); the 2022 NABE Tech Economics Conference (November 6-8, Seattle, WA); the 2023 NABE Economic Policy Conference (dates TBD, Washington, DC); and one Certified Business Economist (CBE) course of their choice. In addition, a $400 one-time travel stipend will be awarded to each recipient.

To be eligible, one must be a current student OR an early-career professional meeting the following criteria:

* Have worked in the economics field for seven years or less 
* Currently be involved in a position that uses economic principles and theory
* Hold an undergraduate college degree or higher

NOTE: Relatives and coworkers of NABE Foundation board members are not eligible to apply. Past NABE Scholars are also ineligible to apply again.

Scholarship awardees are expected to attend and actively participate in as many of the events as possible and use the networking opportunities to meet other professionals in the field.

The Foundation will award full scholarships for each event's registration costs and a one-time travel stipend of $400.

Please submit this application by June 1, 2022, in order to be considered prior to the NABE Foundation Economic Measurement Seminar. Awardees will be contacted the following week. If all twenty scholarships have not been awarded at that point, applications will continue to be taken for the remaining events.
