Eco-Art Festival (Eco-Photo and Eco-Film Contests)
The ESA Student Section is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Eco-Art Festival, in partnership with several conservation/scientific organizations (ILCP, Arkive, Art for Conservation, JoVE, SciVee and FinePrint Imaging). Our judging panel will recognize visual (photo and film) contributions that make a tangible impact of ecology among the general public. Additionally, all ESA members can vote for the "People's Choice Award".
- The Student Travel awards info
The ESA Student Section will support the attendance of national and international students to the 2010 ESA annual conference via travel awards. We expect to give out 3-5 awards of ~$250 for attendance of students within the US and 3-5 awards of ~$350 for students affiliated with institutions outside the US. The final amounts awarded to each individual will be a strong function of distance from the candidate’s Institution to the ESA annual meeting city (Pittsburgh, PA).
- The Academic Excellence for Young Women in Ecology
The ESA Student Section is pleased to sponsor the first Academic Excellence Award for Young Women in Ecology. We will award one female student a prize for academic excellence demonstrated by an outstanding research publication and a commitment to increase the visibility of other women scientists.
- 2010 UCS and ESA-SS Eco-service Award
The Union for Concerned Scientists (UCS) in partnership with the Student Section of the Ecological Society of America (ESA-SS) will honor young scientists for their contributions to the discipline of ecology that have extended beyond the realm of academia and into the broader communities of which they are a part.
