This year the Association will again host a Ph.D. Student Poster Session as part of the Annual Meeting as well as award Travel Grants to doctoral students to help defray the costs of attending our 2019 Annual Meeting to be held in Atlanta, Georgia on January 4-6, 2019. Details on both programs are below.
AFA Ph.D. STUDENT POSTER SESSION
The AFA will again host a Ph.D. Student Poster Session as part of the 2019 Annual Meeting to be held in Atlanta, Georgia. The posters will be displayed in a public area of the AFA hotel and authors will be asked to be present at their posters for specific times during the conference.
Submissions can be made for the Poster Session until July 31st through the Conference Maker website.
Submissions should include your poster title and abstract as well as a draft of your poster or paper on which the poster would be based. The student/submitter must be a member of the Association (student online memberships are available free here). Poster submissions are invited on all topics in finance and may describe research projects, results of work in progress, presentation of data, or recently completed work. Guidelines for materials and layout of poster presentations will be available after presentations have been accepted.
AFA STUDENT TRAVEL GRANT NOMINATIONS
Any current AFA member in the U.S. or abroad is invited to nominate one student, whom he or she has taught or supervised, to be considered for this award. Schools with multiple applicants may receive reduced award amounts.
The nominated student must be a member of the Association (student online memberships are available free here), must be beyond the first year in her or his doctoral studies in finance, financial economics, or a related field, and must not be on the job market during the academic year in which the grant is made. No student may participate in this grant program more than once.
Nominations must be submitted by July 31, 2018 by filling out the AFA Travel Grant Nomination Form.
If there are any issues with the form, please contact David Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The students to receive grants will be selected and informed by August 31, 2018. Awards will be determined based on recommendations and the award amount will factor travel cost to the Annual Meeting from the student's institution as well as the number of nominations from each school.
Award checks will be delivered to the selected students at the annual meeting if a tax/address form is completed before the annual meeting or by mail subsequently if the form is completed at the annual meeting.
