To encourage excellent research by our Economics and International Economics majors, each spring, the Economics Department presents awards for the best theses in Economics and International Economics. The John Harold Sheehan Award is awarded for the best senior honors thesis and the BonAnno Award is given to the student writing the best International Economics thesis.
