The ASN Student Research Award goes to six student members of the American

Society of Naturalists, who hold a bachelor?s degree or equivalent, have

passed to candidacy in a Ph.D. program (or equivalent), must be at least one

year from completing the Ph.D., and who have not received this award

previously. The recipients of the award receive $2,000 and an announcement

in the American Naturalist. They will be asked to send a brief report on how

the money helped to sponsor their research.


An applicant must be a member of the ASN, must hold a bachelor?s degree or

equivalent, must have passed to candidacy in a Ph.D. program or equivalent,

and must be at least one year from completing the Ph.D. Applicants should

send a two-page proposal (not including references--11 point font minimum

with standard margins). In addition, applicants should include a budget with

justification (one page), a short curriculum vitae (two pages), a statement

from the Ph.D. supervisor that verifies that the applicant meets the

eligibility requirements, and the supervisor?s recommendation supporting the

research proposed by the student (one page). Projects in all types of

research (i.e., laboratory, field, theory) are encouraged. A total of six

proposals will receive awards. Proposals will be judged on originality,

strength, and significance of the questions being addressed, prospects for

significant results, and the match between the proposed research and the ASN

mission. All materials should be compiled into one PDF file and sent via

e-mail to Rebecca Fuller (fuller@life.illinois.edu) with ?ASN Student

Research Award? in the subject line. Deadline for submission of all

materials is January 1, 2014.
