The submission deadline for the Tomas Hirschfeld Award and FACSS Student Award is May 15, 2012. Both awards recognize excellent graduate students based upon the entirety of their research as they progress towards their degree, and multiple recipients for each award are possible.
In order to be considered for either award, graduate students must submit an abstract to the SciX conference (http://www.scixconference.org) and note their intention to be considered for the award on the abstract submission webpage. The applicant must then assemble a dossier and forward required information to the FACSS office. More information is available at: http://www.scixconference.org/index.php/awards/facss-2012-student-award-and-tomas-a-hirschfeld-award
Please contact the FACSS office with any questions (FACSS@FACSS.ORG). Remember, application packets must be postmarked (or emailed) no later than May 15.
