Conference Awards and Waivers

Award applications and abstract submissions will be accepted starting in December.

The Society of Ethnobiology is offering a limited number of waivers for people presenting papers or posters at the 2020 conference in Cedar City, Utah. This waiver covers the cost of registration and allows submission of an abstract without becoming a Society member.

We encourage applications for waivers from indigenous scholars and people of diverse backgrounds that are in financial need. Applicants who have received a waiver from the Society within the past three years are not eligible.

If you would like to be considered for such a waiver, please fill out the application form prior to January 15, 2020. Consideration will be given based on the order in which applications are received.
