Annual Biology Student Prizes

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 10:00

We are pleased to announce our annual prizes to our most outstanding Ph.D. students. For this year only GSAS has also provided us with an additional prize from the New York Community Trust.

The graduate committee of the faculty has chosen:
John S. Newberry Prize: Amy Norovich
Peter Sajovic Memorial Prize: Erin Conlon
New York Community Trust: Yuval Simons
James Howard McGregor Award: Catherine O'Keefe, Justin Shaffer, and Divya Venkatesh

John S. Newberry Prize:  Awarded to the graduate student in the Department who, in the opinion of the faculty, is the “most promising student of the year in the field of vertebrate zoology.”

Peter Sajovic Memorial Prize:  Awarded to a graduate student doing outstanding work in biology.

New York Community Trust funds a prize that we can award to one of our students.  It is the Sidney Prince Trust for the Edward Prince Goldman Scholarship in Science and it provides a monetary prize to a student engaged in the study of science that the faculty deem most worthy.

James Howard McGregor Award: Awarded to the graduate student in the Department who, in the opinion of the faculty, “shows unusual promise as a teacher of zoology.”

Congratulations to the awardees and to all our outstanding students!
