EFA Membership & Conference Registration

PhD students submitting papers & applications for the EFA Doctoral Tutorial do not have to be current EFA members to be eligible for this pre-conference event. However, those students whose papers are accepted for presentation at the 2019 EFA-DT will be required to: (1) be or become EFA members for the calendar year, and (2) register for the 46th EFA Annual Meeting (which is a members-only event). Note that EFA-DT student stipends will be issued after the conference to help cover these costs.
