The NBER Working Group on Entrepreneurship meets twice each year, spring and fall, to present and discuss research in the field. We are seeking scholars at the graduate and pre-doctoral level who are interested in the growing field of entrepreneurship research. The travel grants will pay the travel expenses (up to a total of $1,000) for successful candidates to attend the two meetings of the NBER’s Working Group on Entrepreneurship to be held at the NBER’s offices in Cambridge, MA. The meetings will provide students with exceptional opportunities to see the latest research and to participate in informal discussions with leading researchers in the field.

The spring 2008 meeting date is March 14, 2008. The fall meetimg date will be announced later. The programs for the two program meetings held in 2007 may be viewed at the following addresses:
