• 2021 Student Award Recipients

    The Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics is proud to announce this year’s recipients of the Martin and Margaret Lee Prizes and Graduate Student Teaching awards.

    Additionally, two new prizes were awarded in 2021. The first was the Yiran Fan Memorial Prize, a fellowship established in memory of late UChicago Ph.D. student, Yiran Fan, which includes contributions from Fan’s parents and was awarded to a student in the Joint Program in Financial Economics. 

    The second was the George S. Tolley Prize, initiated by economist Vinod Thomas, AM’74, PhD’77 to recognize and reward a third-year doctoral student in the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics whose research paper demonstrates the potential for the impact of economic analysis on policy.
