Undergraduate Ethnobiologist Award
DEADLINE EXTENDED! Applications due by February 20th! The Society of Ethnobiology is looking for a keen undergraduate ethnobiologist to sit on our Board as an appointed "student advisor". The student should come with ideas and energy to increase undergraduate student involvement in our Society.
This is a one-year position that comes with a one-year membership in the Society, a waiver for our Society of Ethnobiology annual meeting registration, accommodation for 3 nights during the conference, and $250 USD to put towards travel.
If you feel you are well suited for this position, send a one-page (maximum) letter to Dr. Marsha Quinlan at email@example.com explaining who you are, your interest in ethnobiology, and your ideas to increase undergraduate student involvement in our Society. Applications are due by January 15.
A committee of three Society of Ethnobiology board members will make recommendations to the entire board about who should be the recipient of the award. Both the successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified of the results shortly after the final decision in the Fall. The successful applicant will take office the following Spring at the Society board meeting, immediately preceding the annual meeting. Attendance at the Board meeting is strongly encouraged. The recipient of the award must be an undergraduate student at the time of taking office. The position will go unfilled if no suitable candidates apply. There is no limit to the number of times a student can apply for the award, but students can only receive the award once.
