The Malcolm and Elizabeth Adiseshiah Trust, which has been giving the best teacher award in Economics each year, has called for applications from aspiring candidates. According to a press release, candidates who have at least 10 years of experience in teaching economics have been asked to send one copy of their application to the Trust directly, besides sending one copy through the head of the institution (for autonomous colleges within Tamil Nadu).

The release added that so far they had been inviting nominations for the award from the head of the Institution, but due to complaints about not all applications reaching the Trust, the procedure has been modified.
