Annual Prize

The JLUO BoD will award the "2018 JSA Thesis Prize" for the best Jefferson Lab related thesis at the Annual Users Organization meeting, scheduled June 24-26, 2019.

2018

For the 2018 competition, the deadline is February 19, 2019 C.O.B. EST (we thank JSA for once again fully funding this prize). A complete package requires:

  • a nomination letter by a senior scientist giving the name and institution of the person being nominated and the names of three people who will send letters of recommendation
  • a copy of the thesis.
  • the three letters of recommendation must be sent before the deadline, as well; it is up to the nominator and the candidate for the Prize to follow up on this.
  • All materials must be submitted electronically to Lorelei Carlson (lorelei@jlab.org)

Theses completed during the calendar year 2018 are eligible, as well as theses completed during the last quarter of 2017 (if they haven't been submitted before). JSA employees and individuals receiving other support from the 2019 JSA Initiatives Fund Program are not eligible for this prize. The thesis prize submissions will be judged initially by members of JLUO BoD, followed by a panel of independent experts to select the final winner. Criteria for evaluation include quality of the written thesis, contribution of the student to the work, and contribution to JLab physics/community.
