Early Career Award

In 2016, MIF launched the Early Career Award. The purpose of the MIF Early Career Award is to recognize outstanding contributions to the theory or practice of OR/MS and service made by active members of MIF. The award recognizes exceptional researchers who have shown promise at the beginning of their academic or industrial career.

Eligible scholars include members who are MIF members, pre-tenure, and within eight years of receiving their doctorate (or equivalent) degree. Individuals are either nominated or self-nominated, and submit a C.V., two-page statement, and one letter of recommendation.

A panel of three judges evaluate nominees based on research (potential and accomplishments to date considering intellectual merit and broader impact) and service (service to broader OR/MS community and the MIF community).

If you would like to apply for this year's award, please see the application instructions. Please see here for past poster session winners and abstracts.
