Romine Senior Seminar Prize

  • The two Romine Prizes are cash prizes that are awarded annually to two members of the graduating class who majored or joint majored in economics. One prize is awarded to the student that wrote the best paper in a senior seminar. The other prize is awarded to the student that wrote the best senior thesis.
  • To be considered for the prize awarded to the best paper in a senior seminar you should speak with the instructor of your senior seminar. The department will contact seminar instructors regarding the best papers in their individual seminars. In addition, the department will send out a request for submissions on the major listserv at the end of the fall semester and around spring break for submissions. A faculty honors committee will review all of the submissions to select a winner.
  • Please note that in the spring semester the deadline for choosing the prize recipients is before the end of the semester. So if you are in a spring seminar and would like to be considered for this prize then you should speak with your instructor no later than the first week of April about the possibility of being nominated. You will be required to submit a polished draft of your paper before the end of the semester to be considered for the Romine Prize.
  • All students that write a senior honors thesis are automatically nominated for the Romine prize.
  • Recent winners of the Romine Senior Thesis Prize are listed under Departmental Honors Students below.
