Moreover, authors under 25 years of age who have never been awarded by the CSE in the past may be granted honourable mentions.

The award is open to Czech citizens as well as citizens of other countries who are living, working or studying in the Czech Republic, aged 30 years or under (these conditions also apply to all potential co-authors!). Applications for the award is not restricted to CES members.

Each applicant may send only one scientific paper of their own work, which should be no longer than 30 pages (a maximum of 54,000 characters including spaces), and must include an abstract, keywords and JEL classification.
