CSWEP Call for Nominations –
2016 Elaine Bennett Research Prize

Deadline: September 21, 2016.

The Elaine Bennett Research Prize is awarded every other year to recognize, support, and encourage outstanding contributions by young women in the economics profession. The next award will be presented in January 2017. Nominees must have demonstrated exemplary research contributions in their field and have earned their Ph.D. in 2009 or later. Nominations should contain the candidate’s CV, relevant publications, a letter of nomination and two supporting letters. As this prize is for fundamental intellectual contributions to economics, the nomination letter should speak to the significance of the candidate’s research with supporting letters from experts in the field.

CSWEP Call for Nominations –
2016 Carolyn Shaw Bell Award

Deadline: September 26, 2016.

The Carolyn Shaw Bell Award is given annually to an individual (male or female) who has furthered the status of women in the economics profession, through example, achievements, increasing our understanding of how women can advance in the economics profession and mentoring others. The next award will be presented in January 2017. Nominations should include a nomination letter, updated CV and three or more supporting letters, with preferably at least two from mentees. As this award celebrates mentoring, nomination letters should be geared toward that activity, rather than toward academic achievements. The Award Committee automatically retains and considers applications for a period of three years. For more information on the Bell Award, click here.


CSWEP Call for Applications –
Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund

Deadline: Ongoing

CSWEP welcomes applications to the Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund, which was established to encourage senior mentoring women and institutions to incorporate mentoring of junior professionals into their programs. The fund provides small grants (typically less than $1K) to permit mentors to either extend a visit to an institution for the purpose of mentoring or to visit an institution for that purpose alone. Applications for funds may be submitted by the institution, junior women or the mentor herself. The application must include cost-sharing with the home institution and the mentoring must benefit more than an individual faculty member. Mentoring does not need to be field specific and can also include professional development advice. Successful applicants will be asked to write a summary of what they have gained from the mentoring effort.

CSWEP Call for Applications –
Co-Sponsorship of Mentoring Events and Experiences

Deadline: Ongoing

As part of an experimental outreach program, CSWEP has minor funding (most successful applications are less than $1K) available for co-sponsoring one-off mentoring events and experiences that are consistent with CSWEP’s mission. For example, in 2013 CSWEP provided supplemental funds to defray the travel expenses of multiple mentors to a pre-conference junior mentoring workshop at the 2013 Meeting of the Midwest Econometrics Group as well as contributed to a Speed Mentoring event organized by DC-Women in the Economics Profession.
