Junior Prizes 2017-10-05T10:32:56+00:00

The Economics Department awards three junior prizes per year: a first, second and third prize.

The prizes will be awarded based on GPA averaged over all departmental courses taken by the end of the junior year plus junior independent work (JIW). JIW counts as two courses. Graduate courses will be awarded an extra 1/3 in the calculation of GPA, as for departmental honors.

Prizes are announced each fall.

This year’s prize winners are

First Prize: Klaus Cao
Second Prize: Benjamin J. Tso
Third Prize: Vishan Nigam
