EHA recognizes excellence in research, publication, and teaching of economic history
The EHA recognizes excellence in research, publication, and teaching of economic history by awarding several annual and biennial prizes in the following categories:
- Data Awards
- Dissertation Awards
- Publication Awards
- Teaching Awards
The Nevins and Gerschenkron prizes are awarded annually for the best dissertations on North American and non-North American topics completed during the previous year. Six finalists, three for each award, are chosen to present dissertation summaries at the Association’s annual meetings each fall. Finalists will receive funds to defray travel expenses, and award recipients receive a cash prize.
Scholars submitting a dissertation may not, in the same year, submit a proposal to the general program that is part of or derived from the dissertation. On an exception basis, the Association will allow a two-year window following thesis completion for submission.
