The Student Section offers national and international travel awards to encourage student attendance at the annual ESA meeting. These awards target students presenting at the meeting who could not otherwise afford to attend.


The ESA Student Section is proud to present our new Trailblazing Students Awards! The goal of the new Student Section awards is to highlight the achievements of STUDENTS in various sectors of ecology, such as research, diversity and inclusion, community outreach and science communication, ecology education, and science policy.

“My experience with ESA has been nothing short of inspiring and deeply satisfying. ”
