Princeton Quant Trading Conference -- Apply by May 22nd!

This fall, the Princeton Quant Trading Conference will be hosting its annual conference in Chicago and we are seeking bright, motivated student organizers to help us.

The Princeton Quant Trading Conference is the largest student-organized quant trading conference in the country (you can check out our webpage here: This spring, between founders, CEOs, and head quants from top trading firms, we attracted dozens of industry leaders as speakers, and several sponsors including Goldman Sachs, Citadel and SIG. The conference will cover subjects ranging from high-frequency trading to statistical arbitrage strategies.

Committee members get unparalleled one-on-one access to these industry leaders, throughout the planning of the conference all the way to the day of the event. Capstones of joining the committee are two exclusive dinners - open only to organizers and industry speakers - where you get the unvarnished truth about the industry and career tips from its most successful practitioners in a very friendly, personal environment.

The Princeton Quant Trading conference has traditionally partnered with education non-profits to establish a lasting legacy within the community. The conference donates all the proceeds to America Needs You, an organization that opens up professional opportunities to low-income first-generation college students.

Joining the committee is a unique opportunity to boost your volunteer and leadership experience, and to expand your network with talented young organizers and prominent finance professionals. Students interested in applying for a position in the committee should complete the web form available in this link.

The deadline for submitting your application is May 22nd. We will be conducting interviews the week immediately afterwards.
