Announcing the 2018 Tobin Project Prize for Inequality and Decision Making

The Tobin Project is currently seeking submissions to its 2018 Prize on Inequality and Decision Making. The $20,000 Prize will be awarded to a junior scholar (or scholars) for insightful and novel research on the topic of inequality and decision making. The deadline for submissions is March 5th, 2018. More information about the prize and the application process can be found here.

We hope to recognize exemplary work on inequality and decision making that will spur further innovation in this field and encourage scholars to pursue new research on this topic. The prize winner will be selected by a committee comprised of senior scholars studying inequality and decision making: Nancy Adler (Lisa and John Pritzker Professor, Departments of Psychiatry and Pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco), Marianne Bertrand (Chris P. Dialynas Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago), and Christopher Jencks (Malcolm Wiener Professor of Social Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, Emeritus). The committee will select the winner after evaluating submissions on the basis of their significance, thoughtfulness, novelty, and rigor.
