The Society for the Development of Austrian Economics is pleased to announce that submissions for the 2008 Don Lavoie Memorial Graduate Student Essay Competition are now being accepted. Submissions will be accepted from students in the dissertation stage of their PhD education in economics or other relevant disciplines anywhere in the world. This competition is designed for students writing dissertations on themes related to Austrian economics; submissions should adhere to appropriate standards of academic writing and should be on a topic relevant to Austrian economics. There is no word limit and students submitting papers to this competition will retain all publication rights to their work. However, winners are encouraged to submit their papers to The Review of Austrian Economics for consideration for publication.
Three prizes are given, each worth $1,000, to be used to pay expenses to attend the Southern Economic Association meetings this November in Washington, DC, where the winners will present their work on a special panel. Prize awards are contingent on attending the SEA meetings and the SDAE’s annual business meeting and awards banquet.
The prize committee consists of:
· Peter Boettke, George Mason University
· Emily Chamlee-Wright, Beloit College
· Steven Horwitz, St. Lawrence University
· David Prychitko, Northern Michigan University
· Virgil Storr, Mercatus Center at George Mason University
The deadline for submissions is October 10, 2008. Decisions will be made by October 15.
Please send all questions and submissions electronically to Peter Lipsey at email@example.com.
