The International Foundation for Research in Experimental Economics (IFREE) has generously sponsored workshops for visiting graduate students, undergraduates and local high school students since its incorporation in 1997.
These workshops introduce students to Experimental Economics and identify promising individuals for pre- and post-doctoral fellowships.
In January 2014 IFREE will sponsor its 19th Visiting Graduate Student Workshop in Experimental Economics at Chapman University. The purpose is to provide an introduction to laboratory methods in economics for Ph.D. students.
This workshop is free for graduate students interested in using Experimental Economics in their Ph.D. dissertation research, but participants must provide their own transportation to and from the workshop. Local housing arrangements are covered by a generous grant from IFREE. Participants must be able to stay for the duration of the workshop, arriving in time for the opening reception. Since this is a competitive program and space is limited, we will only be accepting one application per department.
Each day eligible students will participate in an experiment for cash followed by a presentation from one of the workshop faculty. Thus, as part of their learning experience, participants will earn money to help recover their travel expenses. Participants will have the opportunity interact with the faculty throughout the week. All international participants must receive approval from Chapman University's international student office in order to receive payments from the experiments. If you are an international student and currently in the USA attending a university, please speak with your International Student Advisor about permission to receive payments in the workshop.Participants will be required to read articles prior to arrival as they will be part of the discussions. Hard copies of the articles will be mailed to participants. To view the 2013 reading list, please click here.
