Charles Lave served for more than thirty years as a Professor of Economics at UCI. He valued creative thinking, clear writing, and innovative uses of empirical data. He helped shape social science modeling through his teaching and through his classic book,
An Introduction to Models in the Social Sciences
(written with James March). The prize will be awarded to papers that display clear exposition of creative models (theories) and point to, or include, data that permit evaluation of the models. The prize includes a $1,500 award.
Any UCI undergraduate or graduate student is eligible for the prize.
The paper may be in any social or behavioral science discipline, or interdisciplinary.
It may be qualitative (with words only) or quantitative (with mathematical expressions).
The form may range from a scholarly article (including papers done as class assignments or dissertation chapters) to an op-ed piece.
In keeping with Charles Lave's values, clear and concise writing will be appreciated.
