The Warren J. and Sylvia J. Samuels Young Scholars Program
The Samuels Young Scholars Program is dedicated to maintaining the field of the History of Economics. The Samuels Young Scholars Program, started in 2000 as an initiative from Professor Sandra Peart, is designed to support and highlight research by PhD candidates and scholars who have obtained their PhDs within the last two years. Selected participants are given the opportunity to present their work in special Young Scholar sessions at the annual HES conference.
Those chosen for the Young Scholars program sessions will receive free registration and conference dinner/banquet ticket and a year’s membership of the society, which includes the society’s Journal for the History of Economic Thought. Additional funding may be available to cover accommodation costs at the conference.
In addition, the HES supports the participation of Young Scholars at the Summer Institute for the Preservation of the History of Economic Thought now held at the University of Richmond. Students at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level who wish to attend the Institute are provided a travel grant of $500. Participants who receive support from the HES are selected jointly by the HES and the SI. Interested students can obtain more information by emailing the current President of the Society.
