The Ronald Coase Institute Award for Outstanding Achievement recognizes annually the graduate of the Institute's workshops who best exemplifies the impact of the Institute’s training and continuing scholarly support.
The award includes a monetary prize and a crystal trophy of recognition. It was created through the ideas and generosity of an admirer of the Institute. Final decisions are made by the Board of Directors.
Recipients of this award are selected by the Board of Directors based on (1) scholarly research and publications, (2) current professional position, (3) fellowships and awards, and (4) contributions to the Institute’s network and goals - for example, serving as workshop faculty, organizing workshops, forming a scholarly network, and the like.
Award recipients are scholars with high academic achievements and recognition who promote transformative ideas, advance the study of institutions, explore the practical implications of their research, improve public understanding, and contribute to the goals of the Institute.
