In 2021, CWAE launched new awards to recognize and celebrate individuals who have actively worked to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the applied economics profession.
Purpose and Mission
The vast majority of awards in our profession reward accomplishments based on research, teaching, and/or extension accomplishments. While these are worthy areas of recognition, CWAE would like to also recognize those individuals who have made our profession a more welcoming and supportive place for all who strive to be applied economists. To this end, we have created two awards to recognize those individuals who have actively worked to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion (as defined by the Association of American Colleges and Universities) and who have had a positive impact on students, colleagues, and the culture of their departments and our profession. We will recognize two categories of individuals: those who have been in the profession for less than ten years and those who have been in the profession for ten or more years (consecutive or nonconsecutive). Award recipients will be recognized annually at the CWAE/COSBAE annual luncheon at the AAEA Annual Meetings.
Eligibility and evaluation criteria available here.
