The Carroll Round’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Carroll Round Steering Committee was forced to cancel the 19th Carroll Round Conference. This decision was not made lightly. Moreover, as much the Conference’s value comes in the many intangible interactions that take place over the course of the Conference Weekend, the Steering Committee elected not to host a virtual conference.
Nevertheless, we recognize that the Conference can remain a valuable experience for young economists, an opportunity that should be made as available as possible to members of the Class of 2020. Thus, the Steering Committee has decided that it will welcome applications to participate in the 20th Carroll Round Conference (to be held April 22 – April 25, 2021) from members of the Class of 2020 Cohort. Applications from members of the Class of 2021 Cohort will be accepted as usual. All applications should be made by 11:59PM Eastern Time.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Steering Committee at email@example.com if you have any questions of queries about applying to the Conference or about the Carroll Round in general.
For Members of the Class of 2020 Cohort
Members of the formerly prospective Class of 2020 cohort (those who would’ve been eligible to apply for the 19th Carroll Round to take place in April 2020), have the opportunity to submit applications to participate in the 20th Carroll Round Conference. The deadline for doing so is June 15th, 2020. Any papers and materials submitted by this deadline will be considered final and any updates or changes will only be considered by the Steering Committee in exceptional circumstances. Decisions will be returned to all applicants in the fall of 2020.
The Steering Committee understands that the coming year will likely remain uncertain for many members of the Class of 2020. Of course, planning availability around employment, academic and other engagements nearly a year in advance may pose a significant obstacle. However, the Steering Committee must also make a number of logistical and financial commitments in advance of the Conference. Thus, the timeline for applications will proceed as follows. If accepted by the Steering Committee to participate in the 20th Carroll Round Conference, the Steering Committee will request that those who commit to attending the Conference place a deposit for their Conference fee by the end of the year. Please do not hesitate to contact the Steering Committee about this if making this deposit would pose a significant financial obstacle to your application and/or attendance. The Carroll Round is committed to making the Conference as accessible as possible to all young economists.
For Members of the Class of 2021 Cohort
Members of the Class of 2021 cohort will submit their applications to participate in the 20th Carroll Round Conference as usual. For international students, the deadline for doing so is February 16th, 2021. For domestic applicants, the deadline is March 17th, 2021. Decisions will be returned to international applicants no later than March 12th, 2021 and to all other applicants no later than March 31st, 2021. The Steering Committee recognizes that for many members of the Class of 2021, applications made at this time may represent works in progress.
