The Society supports postgraduate students in a variety of ways. These include:
The Society is able to offer up to ten one-year junior fellowships, tenable at Universities in the United Kingdom. The amount of the fellowship has been increased in 2013 to £9,500 (£12,500 in London). Read more about the RES Junior Fellowship Scheme.
The Royal Economic Society has granted funds to the University of Birmingham to provide Training Schools for many years. These schools are intended primarily for advanced postgraduate students doing doctoral research but are also open to members of the teaching and research staff. Read more about the RES Training Schools.
The aim of the event is to provide a service both for UK and European university economics departments who wish to recruit lecturers, and for PhD students seeking academic jobs in the UK or elsewhere in Europe. The event takes place in London in January each year and consists of two days of students' presentations and poster sessions. Participating institutions are given the opportunity to arrange individual appointments with participating students. Read more about the RES PhD Meeting and Job Market.

The Society's Conference Grant Fund is available to members who are presenting a paper, or acting as a principal discussant at a conference; support of up to £500 is available. Read more about the Conference Grant Scheme.
From its inception the Royal Economic Society has had a commitment to publishing: firstly The Economic Journal and more recently The Econometrics Journal as well as scholarly editions of classic works in economics. Its editions of the works of Ricardo, Malthus, Marshall, Edgeworth, and Keynes set an international standard in these matters. RES members receive 30% discount on all Society scholarly editions and 20% on all Wiley books and journals. Check here for further details including offers on all 30 volumes of The Collected Writings of John Maynard Keynes.
Student membership is available to new members only, who are registered as full-time students. From 2013 there is a discounted online only student rate available for 1 year or 3 years, which we hope will give more choice to post graduate students.
The Society is able to provide financial support to postgraduate student members attending the RES Annual Conference. Follow the link for details about the financial support available.
We also offer a Small Academic Expenses scheme for unexpected expenditure incurred by RES members. Follow the link for details.
