Our goal for the Benjamin C. Horne Memorial Prize is to raise funds to create an endowment* of a minimum of $25,000. This fund will generate an annual payout that will be awarded each year to graduate students in Economics at UC San Diego whose research has potential to advance causes that were dear to our friend Ben: peace, international cooperation, development, and environmental protection. The fund will be established in the UC San Diego Foundation, and will be administered by the Department of Economics Chair.
Note that if the $25,000 minimum is not met by December 31, 2017, the fund will remain an expendable fund for the same purpose as above, and the gifted amounts will be spent in their entirety.
If you are interested in donating to this fund, you can make a gift online or mail a check to UC San Diego, Division of Social Sciences, 9500 Gilman Drive #0502, La Jolla, CA 92093-0502. Please make the check out to the UC San Diego Foundation, and indicate “Benjamin C. Horne Memorial Prize.” Thank you!
