IIPF Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize
|Richard Musgrave (*1910 †2007) on his 90th birthday|
The IIPF created the "Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize" in 2003 to honor and encourage younger scholars whose work meets the high standards of scientific quality, creativity and relevance that has been a mark of the Musgraves’ contribution to public finance.
It is awarded annually, on the advice of the Scientific Chair of the respective congress and further members of the award committee, to the author(s) of the best paper presented at the IIPF Annual Congress. Authors need to be under 40 years old. In the case of co-authored papers all authors need to be under 40. Age is measured as of the ending day of the Congress, when the prize is awarded.
Authors who wish to be considered for the "IIPF Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize" should indicate this when submitting their papers for presentation at the Annual Congress.
The 2013 IIPF Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize has been awarded to Andreas Bernecker (University of Mannheim, Germany) for his paper Divided We Reform? Evidence from US Welfare Policies.
