Six Fellows were chosen in each of the first three years, and up to three Fellows may be inducted each year thereafter. Candidates must be living at the time of nomination.

AERE Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award
AERE invites nominations for the 2015 Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award. Nominees must have earned their doctoral degree in 2015 and written a doctoral dissertation in environmental or resource economics. The award winner will receive a $1,500 cash award along with a $500 travel grant to attend a recognition ceremony at the 2017 AERE Luncheon at the Allied Social Science Associations annual meeting in Chicago. The winner’s dissertation abstract will be published in the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists.
Nominations must come from the chair of the nominee’s dissertation committee and must include (1) a nominating letter from the chair outlining the particular strengths and intellectual contributions of the dissertation, and (2) an electronic version of the final and completed doctoral dissertation. The nominating chair of the dissertation committee must be a current AERE member at the time of nomination.
Dissertations will be judged by a panel of AERE members who will emphasize originality of research, quality of implementation, expositional clarity, along with intellectual and practical significance of research findings.
Nominations should be sent by email to Professor Nicholas Flores (Nicholas.Flores@colorado.edu) no later than midnight PST, April 30, 2016.
