This prize is supported by a bequest from the Albert D. Moscotti Trust. In 2003, Dr. Moscotti bestowed a gift on the Center for Southeast Asian Studies in recognition of its work education US veterans "under most difficult circumstances" following World War II. Dr. Moscotti, who died in 2003, was Professor Emeritus of Asian Studies at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. He received a doctorate in 1950 at Yale University with a dissertation focusing on Burma, and he earned an MA from the University of Michigan in 1947.
