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.

The EFA 2023 Annual Meeting in collaboration with the Doctoral Tutorial will host a poster session during the conference. Authors wishing to apply with their paper to the poster session, can signal their interest during submission. 


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

  1. Anonymous single-authored Paper
  2. CV
  3. 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.)

Deadline: March 15, 2023, at midnight Pacific Time
