Economics Scholars Program

The Economics Scholars Program (ESP) is a collaborative effort between academic institutions across Ohio, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania and the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. ESP is a free economic research conference that invites student scholars and faculty to come together and share undergraduate student-initiated or student-faculty coauthored works, cultivate imaginative research, gain valuable experience presenting at a professional conference, learn about internship and employment opportunities with the Federal Reserve, and network with peers.
