Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) gives two Book Awards annually, one for work in History and the Humanities and another for work in the Social Sciences. CESS began offering these book awards in 2007 to each subject in every other year, and in 2018 both awards became available on an annual basis.

The CESS Book Award and a monetary prize of $500 is presented to the author of the book or monograph that represents the most important contribution to Central Eurasian studies during the award period. An interdisciplinary panel of scholars of Central Eurasia, appointed annually by the CESS Board, consider scholarly merit, argumentative scope, and felicity of style in their deliberations.
