Eli Schwartz Research Prize
Accepting submissions of undergraduate papers in economics
Earn $1,000 by writing an original research paper
The Department of Economics is inviting papers to be considered for the annual Eli Schwartz Research Prize. Professor Eli Schwartz was a longtime member of the Department of Economics, a former department chair, and a well-known scholar in many areas of economics.
With the generosity of alumnus Richard H. Johnson, the Department has instituted in Professor Schwartz’s honor a prize of $1,000 to be awarded each year to a student who has written an outstanding research paper in economics. All Lehigh undergraduate students may submit a research paper in the area of economics for consideration. Eligible papers include papers submitted for a course or papers researched and written independently. A departmental committee will determine the winner from papers submitted.
To be given full consideration, papers should be submitted before April 15 with the decision typically made by May 1 of the same year.
