ICLE Announces Junior Scholars Awards and Grants Program

PORTLAND, Ore. (Sept. 7, 2023) – The International Center for Law & Economics (ICLE) is pleased to announce its 2023 Awards and Grants Program for Junior Scholars. This program seeks to recognize junior scholars doing important research using economic methods applied to contemporary and emerging law and public-policy issues. Awards and grants will be considered on a rolling basis.

Consideration for an award or grant requires nomination by a current ICLE academic affiliate or scholar. All pre-tenure academics are eligible for this program, including post-docs, fellows, and individuals in non-tenure track academic research appointments.

Research awards may be given to publishable papers (including those that have not been submitted for publication but that are substantially complete) that have been completed primarily in the past 12 months. These awards include a $1,000 honorarium.

Research grants are intended to support new or recently undertaken projects with relevance to current or emerging policy topics. These grants are generally $7,500, and may be awarded to individual researchers as honoraria or, at their discretion, to their institutions. In rare instances, larger awards may be made to support specific costs necessary to the research.

Research on all topics is considered. We are particularly interested in work relating to conglomerate and ecosystem business models, the relationship between labor markets and competition policy, empirical investigations of the effects of vertical integration, and assessments of the effectiveness of industrial policy and regulatory efforts to structure markets.

Submissions and inquiries should be sent to [email protected].
