Varga Prize

The Ivan Varga Prize for New Generation Scholars

This award recognizes an outstanding new paper by a scholar who is at most three years beyond the PhD.  It is named for our late Honorary President, Ivan Varga, who was well-known for supporting scholars just entering the profession.  This is a monetary award, whose amount will be set by the ISA Board before the 2018 World Congress in Toronto.

The recipient is expected to present the paper at the World Congress.  The Research Committee will assist the recipient in attending.  The amount and parameters of this aid will be as generous as possible.

The prize was established by a gift from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous.  It has been augmented by a grant from Springer Publishing.
