ASAP is proud to manage a portfolio of awards. Each fund we are responsible for has a specific theme or focus. We are immensely grateful to our partners and sponsors for their support, without them this important strand of our work would not be possible.

ASAP has run a number awards over the years and made the expansion of this area of our work a strategic priority.

Ambedkar Grants for Advancing Poverty Eradication

AGAPE is an initiative by Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP), an international community of scholars and researchers working to confront the rules and practices that perpetuate global poverty and to initiate targeted, evidence-based reforms. This initiative commemorates and honors Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, India’s foremost promoter of poverty eradication

The ninth annual Amartya Sen Prize

This year, Global Financial Integrity, Academics Stand Against Poverty, and Yale’s Global Justice Program will be awarding the ninth annual Amartya Sen Prize to the two best original essays examining one particular component of illicit financial flows, the resulting harms, and possible avenues of reform. Essays should be about 7,000 to 9,000 words long. There is a first prize of USD 5,000 and a second prize of USD 3,000. Winning essays must be available for publication in Journal Academics Stand Against Poverty.

We welcome authors from diverse academic disciplines and from outside the academy. Please send your entry by email attachment on or before 31 August 2022 to Tom Cardamone at While your message should identify you, your essay should be stripped of self-identifying references, formatted for blind review.

Journal ASAP Awards

Starting this year, Journal ASAP will confer three annual awards for poverty-focused academic work – all with nomination deadlines of 30 September 2022.

  • An ASAP Lifetime Achievement Award for constructive work related to poverty.
  • An ASAP Book of the Year Award for the best book on a poverty-related subject, published in 2021 and written by a single author or group of authors.
  • An ASAP Book of the Year Award for the best collection of poverty-related essays by different authors published in 2021.

Award winners will be announced at the next Yale Global Justice Program Annual Conference, 10-13 November 2022.

Winning books will be reviewed by Journal ASAP and promoted through ASAP Social Media and the ASAP Newsletter.
