Petar Stankov, a CERGE-EI PhD candidate, current CERGE-EI Graduate Teaching Fellow and Assistant Professor at Sofia's University of National and World Economy (UNWE) has won that university's 2012 "Teacher of the Year" award. The UNWE was recently ranked as the top university in the country by the Bulgarian Institute for National Policy. Its student community organized the teacher award for the first time this year with all students eligible to vote. A total of two awards were made, one for full professors and one for assistant professors, the latter being won by Petar. Nearly 600 teaching staff were eligible for the prize, which further illustrates the significance of the award.
