Outstanding Student Award

Department of Economics awards are sponsored by different endowments, but all award decisions are considered at the same time. No student will be awarded more than one departmental scholarship. Past recipients of any departmental award are not eligible to apply.

Each award recipient receives a certificate and the name of the recipient is displayed in the Economics Department. Each award also carries a cash prize of $1,500.

The deadline for application for the Spring 2024 awards is March 29, 2024. Winners will be announced by April 15, 2024. Application forms and log-in instructions for the FS4U website are posted at the bottom of this page below the award descriptions.
