Student Award Competitions
Apply during registration
Graduate Student Mayr and Hamilton awards
Students who are members of the Society for the Study of Evolution or the Society of Systematic Biologists may be eligible to apply for the SSE's Hamilton Award (deadline April 15, 2021) or the SSB's Ernst Mayr Award (deadline extended until April 30, 2021) during talk submission. Consult the society pages linked above for eligibility criteria.
How to Apply
Those planning to apply should sign up early for a Faux-Live talk, because once these slots fill, it will no longer be possible to apply for these awards. The application to become a Hamilton or Mayr award finalist is part of registration for the annual meeting. Applicants must check a box during registration indicating their interest for the Hamilton Award or Mayr Award and submit an abstract. If your application is successful, you will present your talk during the live-streamed Hamilton Award symposium or Mayr Award Symposium on Friday, June 25th. If your application is not successful, your talk will be scheduled during the faux-live concurrent sessions. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of the selection process by May 15 at the latest. Talk submission is only available after your main registration has been completed.
