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 in September of each year. Prize recipients:
Class of 2014
First Prize: Elizabeth Emory Pitts
Second Prize: John Joseph McNamara IV
Third Prize: Brendon Lowell Vetter
