The award honors outstanding papers on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and social justice-related issues using OR/MS methodologies and written by a student member. The prizes will be awarded at the 2022 INFORMS Annual Meeting, and all finalists will be invited to present their paper at a special session sponsored by the DEI Committee.
The deadline for applications is June 30, 2022. Applications consist of the paper itself and a letter from the student's advisor(s) certifying that all eligibility requirements have been met. Applications must be submitted on the INFORMS award website.
