Moore Dissertation Fellowship in Economics.The Moore Dissertation Prize is a $5,000 award presented annually to support the research phase of the dissertation process. The student's topic must belong to the general area of Applied Microeconomics and must involve both empirical analysis and issues of public policy as an essential part of the research agenda.  If no paper reaches this threshold of excellence, no award is given.
