The Nakahara Prize
General Information


The Association created an official prize for the first time in 1995. The aim of the prize is honoring and encouraging young (precisely speaking, under 45 years) economists to publish internationally well-recognized papers and/or books. The Board of Directors selects the members of a nominating committee consisting of both Japanese and foreign economists, who choose one prize recipient every year. This award system has been made possible by the generous endowments by Mr. Nobuyuki NAKAHARA, a businessman, for the first nine years and afterward by the Shin-Nihon Scholarship Foundation of which Mr. NAKAHARA is the president.
