A Letter From the Chair

May 17, 2016


Thank you for taking an interest in the Carroll Round. The Carroll Round serves to provide a unique forum for undergraduate research in international economics. The Carroll Round Steering Committee and I are honored to be part of such a rewarding conference and look forward to continuing to build upon this mission during this year’s sixteenth annual conference.  

In April every year, undergraduates from around the world come to Washington D.C. to present their original research in international economics at Georgetown University’s Carroll Round Conference. Beyond presenting their research, these students have the opportunity to engage in dynamic discussions with fellow top undergraduates, as well as expert economists and policymakers. The Carroll Round conference presents a great opportunity for undergraduates to build lifelong friendships and networks beyond the time they spend with each other at the conference. 

The Carroll Round has been an integral part of my time here at Georgetown University. This year’s steering committee will be working diligently throughout the year to put on an excellent conference for this year’s participants. We are committed to continuing to facilitate undergraduate economics research and carrying on the mission of the Carroll Round through this academic exchange.

This year’s conference will be held from April 20th to April 23rd, 2017. I hope that all interested undergraduates currently pursuing economics research will apply. Our application will be live on this website late November and regular updates about the sixteenth conference will be posted here as well. Additionally, the Carroll Round’s history, mission, and past conference highlights can be found on this website. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

We look forward to seeing you in April!

Chair, 16th Carroll Round Steering Committee
