The prize is awarded to the best doctoral thesis written in Mexico (or by Mexican citizens anywhere in the world) on the fields of Astronomy, Astrophysics, Cosmology, Space Sciences or Astronomical Instrumentation. 

The thesis entitled "Constraining the Parameter Space of the Dark Energy Equation of State Using Alternative Cosmic Tracers" focuses on the use HII galaxies to trace the redshift-distance relation in an attempt to constrain the dark energy equation of state parameter solution space.
