## The MAS (Military Application Society) Prize

Each spring since 1970 the Military Applications Society (MAS) has awarded a prize to a student at each of the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, and the U.S. Air Force Academy. This award is for the outstanding graduating student at the academy in Operations Research. The Naval Academy has made the Midshipman's senior project a strong factor in the choice of the recipient.
