What is the College Fed Challenge?

The College Fed Challenge is an academic competition that provides undergraduate students the opportunity to study the U.S. economy through the lens of the U.S. Central Bank. The program is designed to encourage students to learn more about economics and the work of the Federal Open Market Committee. The challenge offers students an enriching experience to think critically about the economy, construct an argument and present their well-crafted research findings to Federal Reserve Bank economists.
