Junior Scholar Program

The Junior Scholars Program (JSP) seeks to promote the professional development of junior researchers in urban economics and real estate finance and connect them to more senior people in their field. The program also enhances diversity among future AREUEA members and enables established members to give back to AREUEA.

Any early-career scholar in urban economics or real estate who is no more than four years post-Ph.D., including Ph.D. students on the market, can apply. The submission portal for the 2024 AREUEA National Conference provides instructions on how to apply for the 2024 cycle.
