EFA 2024 Newsletter

Dear Members and Friends of the European Finance Association (EFA)

PhD students in the field of Finance are invited to submit their applications for the EFA Doctoral Tutorial to be held on August 21, 2024. This is a pre-conference event designed for doctoral students held immediately prior to the official start of the 51st EFA Annual Meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia (August 21, 2024) organised by National Bank of Slovakia. 

The submission deadline is March 15, 2024  (midnight Standard Pacific Time).


The EFA Doctoral Tutorial

The EFA Doctoral Tutorial (EFA-DT) is an intensive and competitive annual event intended for Finance students nearing completion of their PhDs who are about to enter the job market. This special session provides students with an excellent opportunity to present their single-authored papers and receive detailed feedback from a distinguished faculty.  

The one-day format allows the EFA-DT co-chairs to select up to eight PhD papers. Students whose papers are accepted for presentation receive a stipend to help cover EFA membership, conference registration and travel expenses

Paper submission procedure

Interested students are invited to apply for the EFA-DT by uploading the following documents:

  • Anonymous single-authored Paper
  • CV
  • Official Letter on institutional letterhead (signed & stamped with an official seal). The letter should be issued from the home university and confirm the PhD student’s enrolment status & topic of research. (A Reference Letter is not needed for the DT.)

There is no fee to submit a paper. You do not have to be members of EFA.  You can submit to both the EFA Annual Meeting (main conference) and the Doctoral Tutorial - however, you will need to make two separate submissions in the two systems.  

Deadline: March 15, 2024, at midnight Pacific Time

The European Finance Association (EFA) is an international non-profit association with scientific and pedagogical objectives. Its events, including the  51st EFA Annual Meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia, are funded by external organizations. Without the financial support of these entities, it would not be possible to organize a successful conference.
