Eligibility: Nominations are welcomed from across the globe. Preference is given to individuals, but groups are eligible to apply for the Roux Prize. Self-nominations are discouraged. Current full-time faculty, fellows, or employees of IHME and the University of Washington are not eligible. Preference will be given to an individual, rather than a group.
Nomination instructions: Nominations are now closed for 2018, but are being accepted on a rolling basis for the 2019 Roux Prize. As the evaluation of nominees depends on the information supplied, nominations should be accurate, detailed, and complete. We prefer nominations in English. Due to organizational capacity we cannot guarantee that applications in languages other than English will be reviewed.
Award: The Roux Prize is awarded annually by members of IHME’s Board.
