Prizes and Fellowships


Albert Rees Prize for the Outstanding Princeton Ph.D. Dissertation in Labor Economics

The prize is awarded every two years for the Princeton Ph.D. dissertation, completed within the last six years, judged to have made the greatest contribution to labor economics. The prize commemorates Al Rees's great contributions to labor economics at Princeton as a scholar, teacher, mentor, colleague, and friend.



Since 1949 the Industrial Relations Section at Princeton has issued an annual list of "Noteworthy Books in Industrial Relations and Labor Economics". These books are selected each spring by the associates of the Industrial Relations Section from among the many dozens published during the previous year in the areas of Industrial Relations, Human Resource Management, and Labor Economics. The list includes eminent scholarly works as well as significant new books of interest to a wider audience of practitioners and general readers.
