CSWEP: Calls and Announcements
Call for Nominations: CSWEP's Carolyn Shaw Bell Award and Elaine Bennett Research Prize
The annual Carolyn Shaw Bell Award is given to an individual 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, or mentoring others. Nominations should include a nomination letter, updated CV and three or more supporting letters, with preferably at least two from mentees. Nomination letters should be focused on examples of how the nominee has fulfilled the criterion of advancing the position of women in economics, rather than strictly on academic achievements.
A CSWEP-appointed committee reviews nominations and the prize will be awarded at the January 2021 AEA Meetings in Chicago. The Award Committee automatically retains and considers applications for a period of three years, and previous nominators are encouraged to update nomination packages if appropriate. Nominations are due September 15, 2020.
The biennial Elaine Bennett Research Prize supports, encourages and recognizes outstanding contributions by young women in the economics profession. Nominees should be at the beginning of their career, normally within seven years of completing their dissertation of earning their Ph.D. However, adjustments will be made for nominees who have had childrearing or medical leaves. Nominees will have demonstrated exemplary research contributions in their field. Nominations should contain the candidate’s CV, relevant publications, a letter of nomination and two supporting letters. The Bennett Prize is for fundamental intellectual contributions to economics. Correspondingly, the nomination letter should describe the candidate’s research and its significance and supporting letters should come from experts in the field who are best able to speak to these contributions, regardless of departmental or agency affiliation.
A CSWEP-appointed committee reviews nominations and the prize will be awarded at the January 2021 AEA Meetings in Chicago. Nominations are due September 15, 2020.
