IRES invites applications to its Annual Graduate Student Workshop. The workshop is designed primarily for advanced economics, sociology, and political science students, but we welcome proposals from all disciplines.

The Workshop provides two days of intensive instruction, interaction, and feedback for a select group of advanced graduate students. Each student must have a completed paper, which will be circulated and studied in advance. Sessions will center on presentations and
discussions, with professors and students giving detailed feedback on each paper.


Applications should include a one-page summary and CV. The one page summary should include your name, university affiliation, email, graduate advisor, and a 300-500 word description of your work.

Complete the registration form no later than March 29, 2024. If you already have a draft of your paper, please include it with your application. Applications that include papers will be given higher priority.


IRES will cover the cost of an economy flight, hotel, and workshop meals.

If you are on immigration status, consult your designated school official to verify that you can participate in this workshop and receive an honorarium payment before applying. Due to federal restrictions, students with F1 visas will have to cover the costs of their own flights.
