Scholarships and travel awards for scientists from developing countries will not be awarded until further notice.
As a result of a tight SSB budget the last several years, Scholarships and travel awards for scientists from developing countries will not be given until further notice.
The President's Award is given to a person who has made outstanding and sustained contributions to the field over the course of many years. The recipient is selected by three people - the past [chair], present and future presidents - and is given once every three years.
The Society of Systematic Biologists (SSB) announces the 2013 annual Graduate Student Research Award competition. The purpose of these awards is to assist students in the initiation (first two years) of their systematics projects and in the collection of preliminary data to pursue additional sources of support (e.g., Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants from the National Science Foundation) or to enhance dissertation research (e.g., by visiting additional field collection sites or museums). Applicants may be from any country, but must be members of SSB, and are advised to join the Society as soon as possible to facilitate their applications (to join go to: http://systbio.org/?q=node/6). Previous awardees may not re-apply, but previous applicants who were not selected for funding are encouraged to re-apply. Awards will range between $1200 - $2000 and approximately 10 - 15 awards will be made. The list of awardees below includes examples of successful proposals for you to download.
This Award is sponsored by Systematic Biology's publisher. The award is presented to the two best papers based on student research published in Systematic Biology during the previous year. The lead author must have been a student at the time the research was conducted. The Publisher's Award is $US 500 and is presented at the annual meeting to the student authors. If an article is co-authored by 2 or more students then special arrangements can be made to ensure appropriate recognition of each. The award was initiated with Volume 48 (1998) and the first award was presented at the 1999 meeting. The winner is selected by a committee consisting of the President and the Editor. No application is required.
To encourage students starting out in systematics the Society sponsors the following awards.
