The Academy's dissertation award is designed to recognize and promote outstanding research by new scholars addressing social insurance policy questions.

Nicholas's dissertation is entitled "Medicare Advantage? The Effect of Managed Care on Medicare Quality, Costs and Enrollment." It was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the John A Hartford Foundation.
