The Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize


The Prize Committee recognizes no geographic limitations. The Prize may be awarded to an individual or group. When the Prize is awarded to a group, each member will receive a citation, but the honorarium will be divided among the recipients. Preference is given to work done in the recent past.
