he Laerm Award is given each Spring to a graduating or recently graduated senior Ecology major (i.e., students having graduated the past December or scheduled to graduate in May). The award competition will be based on a combination of research, classroom, and service performance (i.e., all-around qualities as a professional ecologist).
There will be one award of $200.
Nomination packets are due April 1.
Any Odum School Faculty member (regular, adjunct, research) may nominate one person per year.
The nomination packet should include:
(1) a letter of support from the nominating faculty member;
(2) one other letter (from any faculty, post-doc, technician or grad student);
(4) a CV; and
(5) a statement of personal assessment and professional plans from the candidate (maximum 1 page, single spaced).
Ability to follow instructions is a factor in determining successful competition for the award.
Submit materials to: Misha Boyd (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Undergraduate Program Committee will review the nominations and make the final decision.
