Annual Prize

Assuming continuation of funding, the User Group awards an annual "JSA Thesis Prize" for the best Jefferson Lab related thesis in a given calendar year. The prize includes a monetary award and travel to the Annual User Group Meeting (typically in June of the following year), where the prize is awarded and the winner gives a presentation on her or his research.

The deadline for submission of nominations for any given year is usually in late January of the following year. 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, along with a copy of the thesis, preferably electronically. Stay tuned for further details about the 2011 thesis prize.
