There are lots of perks to being a member of the Student Section, including eligibility for the many awards that we offer each year.

Award applications are due on June 1st Annually at 5pm Eastern Standard Time.


REAL BROWN TRAVEL AWARDS

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.


OUTSTANDING STUDENT RESEARCH IN ECOLOGY AWARD

This award honors students that publish papers of particular significance to the scientific community through a $100 cash prize. Broadly, we select winners based on the citability, credibility and relevance of published research.


ECO-SERVICE AWARD

The Union of Concerned Scientists, in partnership with the Student Section, will honor two young scientists, each with a $500 cash prize, for their contributions to ecology that have extended beyond the realm of academia.

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