The Outstanding Master’s Thesis Awards are given in recognition of development of professional excellence by individuals writing master’s theses in any field consistent with the AAEA Vision Statement. A maximum of three awards are given. A cash supplement of $500 accompanies each award. The nominator must be an AAEA member.
Each graduate degree granting department or institute within a university may submit one nomination for every 15 Master’s theses or fraction thereof presented to a graduate school faculty in the calendar year proceeding the year of recognition. In determining the number of eligible theses, universities should limit consideration to theses in any field consistent with AAEA Vision Statement.
Selection will be made from documentation approved in final form by the student’s advisory committee. The thesis will be eligible for the competition in the calendar year following the one in which the thesis was accepted by the graduate school or division of the degree-granting institution.
A published thesis may be entered in both the published research and master’s thesis categories but is eligible for only one award. Although a published thesis is acceptable, a copy of the thesis as submitted to the graduate faculty should be sent whenever possible.
The cover sheet and letter of nomination should be submitted to the subcommittee chair in electronic PDF form along with an electronic PDF version of the thesis (or comparable document) in a separate file.
