In order to support the teaching of palynology at the undergraduate level, and to encourage and reward student engagement and achievement in this field, AASP-The Palynological Society announces the Undergraduate Student Award.
The awards are made annually to students nominated by faculty members teaching courses with significant palynological content. One student recipient, with meritorious achievement in some aspect of the course, can be nominated per year per institution.
A faculty member, who is a member in good standing of AASP-The Palynological Society, and who teaches an appropriate course, may nominate the course using the Registration Form [AASP Undergraduate Student Award Form]. Upon approval by the Awards Committee, faculty teaching approved courses may nominate a student to receive the award at any time of the year on the basis of their qualifying criteria.
Each award consists of one year’s free membership in the society which includes a free one-year subscription to the journal Palynology and the quarterly newsletter as well as discounts on other publications of The Palynological Society, discounted registration fees at society meetings, and eligibility for society awards.
