The International Foundation for Research in Experimental Economics (IFREE) has generously sponsored summer workshops for visiting graduate students, undergraduates and local high school students since its incorporation in 1997. Recently, the Thomas W. Smith Foundation joined IFREE in sponsoring the high school student workshops.
These workshops introduce students to Experimental Economics, attract potential economics majors and identify promising individuals for internships and pre- and post-doctoral fellowships.
June 26-30, 2017 ESI will host one week-long IFREE and Thomas W. Smith Foundation sponsored workshop on experimental economics for rising junior and senior students. For those rising seniors who might not have the opportunity to study economics in their high schools, the objective of these workshops is to expose them to and get them interested in the foundations of economic analysis using experimental economics. A subset of the students may have already taken economics classes, and for those students, the goal is to cultivate their interest in economics and introduce them to economics as an observational science with new topics, problems, and experiments. This workshop does not assume any previous study in economics.
Please note, the 2017 workshop will be an all commuter program. Students that are able to commute to and from the workshop are welcome to apply. Students are responsible for their transportation commuting to and from the workshop each day.
