The CESS Lifetime Service to the Field Award
The inaugural Lifetime Service to the Field Award was awarded posthumously to Edward Allworth. CESS is honoured to be able to make this award, and we remain deeply saddened by Dr Allworth's recent passing.
The CESS Lifetime Service to the Field Award is normally presented every two years to an individual in recognition of extraordinary lifetime achievement in the field of Central Eurasian Studies. The award is accompanied by a monetary prize of $500. An interdisciplinary panel of scholars of Central Eurasia will consider the nominations.
Guidelines for the competition are as follows:
The deadline to make a nomination for the 2016 Lifetime Service to the Field Award was 1 June, 2016.
The next Lifetime Service to the Field Award will be awarded in 2018.
