Since 1995, the Society has invited UK universities to nominate economics students for one-year junior research fellowships.Those awarded a Junior Fellowship grant are now also invited to both attend the RES Annual Conference at the end of their research year and submit a research paper to the RES Conference Programme Chair for possible inclusion in an RES Junior Fellowship conference session. The Society received 47 applications in 2016 for this increasingly popular scheme from 18 universities (Birkbeck, Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Essex, Lancaster, Leicester, Loughborough, LSE, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, Reading, RHUL, Sheffield, Sussex, UCL and Warwick).  We would like to thank all those who applied and also the panel of referees from the RES Council for their painstaking work.
