2019 CWEC/CFEC Call for Award Nominations

CWEC/CFEC Call for Nominations


CWEC/CFEC would like nominations for two awards to be given out at the Canadian Economic Association Meetings in Banff on May 31, 2019.


CWEC awards the CWEC Service Award to an economist judged by the selection committee to have furthered the status of women in the economics profession, through example, achievements, increasing our understanding of how women can advance in the economics profession, or mentoring other.

Nominations are open, and shall normally consist of a nomination letter, CV, and two or more supporting letters, with preferably at least one from a mentee. The nomination letters should be geared toward examples of how the nominee has fulfilled the criteria of the award, not necessarily through academic achievement alone.

Nominees may be of any gender or sex but must have spent a significant amount of their career in Canada. The selection committee has leeway on deciding the definition of “significant amount of time.”

Deadline: March 15, 2019

CWEC awards the CWEC Young Researcher Prize to a female junior economist in

Canada judged by the selection committee to have the best research record.

Nominees must have a current, primary appointment in Canada and have done so in at least three of the past five years or since completing their Ph.D. To be eligible, nominees must be at the beginning of their career (typically within 10 years of receipt of a PhD, allowing for career interruptions) and have not been previously awarded this prize.

Nominations are open and shall normally consist solely of the nominee’s curriculum vitae. However, a nominating letter from the candidate’s department chair or another senior mentor and/or a letter explaining any career interruptions will also be considered.

 Deadline: March 1, 2019
