Ken Wang Scholars will be selected by an award committee and invited to present their work at the 2021 AGIFORS Symposium. The AGIFORS Community, represented by the conference attendants, will get opportunities to ask questions at the conference, and the awards will be presented to the winners.
AGIFORS Scholars will receive a cash award of USD $1,000 as well as air transportation, accommodations, and registration fees to attend the next AGIFORS Annual Symposium. The total value of each Ken Wang Scholars Award is therefore more than USD $2,500.
