The ESA Student Section is pleased to sponsor the second Academic Excellence Award for Young Women in Ecology. We will award one female student a prize for academic excellence demonstrated by an outstanding research publication and a commitment to increase the visibility of other women scientists.
ELIGIBILITY AND NOMINATION:
At the time of the nomination deadline (SUNDAY JUNE 12Th 2011), the nominee must have published a paper in a peer-reviewed journal (MAY 2009-MAY 2011) and have implemented outreach activities to promote women in science. Accepted manuscripts in press are eligible, but in review are not. The nominee must be an undergraduate student, a graduate student, or have received a Ph.D. within the past two years. In addition, the nominee must be first author of the paper and be a member in good standing of ESA's Student Section at the time of nomination. If you are not sure if your dues are up to date with the ESA Student Section, pleas contact our membership officer (Sandra Dooley dooleys(at)uci.edu). Self-nominations and nominations by colleagues are welcome.
Applications will be reviewed by an Awards Committee appointed by the Officers of the Student Section. The award package will be judged based upon (1) the paper’s contribution to the field, including originality, study design and impact and (2) the nominee’s outreach efforts to promote participation of young women in science.
The awards will be made public during the ESA Student Section award ceremony, to be held on the Tuesday, August 9th, at the conference center (time and room TBA) of the annual meeting conference. Applicants are required to attend this event.
