Caroline Kautz Book Prizes are awarded to freshmen and sophomore undergraduate students.

Awardees are selected based on a holistic evaluation, which includes strong academic credentials, a demonstration of an ongoing connection to the Economics Department, and a demonstrated interest in, aptitude for, and passion for economics.
