Beginning Fall 2021, the Department of Economics offers two bachelor's degrees: Economics BA and Economics BS. The new BS program is STEM designated and emphasizes developing the mathematic and econometric skills that are increasingly in demand today.
Thanks to the generosity of Lynn Scarpati, the Economics Department is proud to inaugurate this annual conference in the Spring 2024 semester.
All undergraduate economics majors and all MA/MS students in Economics are eligible and are invited to participate. Non-economics majors with sufficient economics background are also eligible.
Participating students will present their papers in a conference format at the end of the Spring semester. The best and runner-up papers, selected by a faculty panel of judges, will be awarded $3,000 and $2,000, respectively.
