The NZAE Education Trust has established eight special awards to enable post-graduate students to attend the New Zealand Association of Economists annual conference (details of conference). Preference will be given to spreading the awards among the New Zealand universities.
Awardees will receive free conference registration and up to $200 (the award will be $100 for students located in the city of the conference) to assist with their travel. In return, recipients are required to work for half a day, each day of the conference, as a conference assistant. Conference assistants will be under the direction of Conference Organisation Committee Members.
Each University Head of Department is being asked to select a student from his or her department to receive the award.
