TEXAS ACADEMY OF SCIENCE
2013 ANNUAL STUDENT
RESEARCH AWARD COMPETITION
The Texas Academy of Science announces the 2013 competition. Awards will be presented at the annual meeting to be held at Schreiner University in Kerrville. The competition includes three categories (Ph.D., M.S. and B.S/B.A students) with three awards in each category: first place for $2,000, second place for $1,500, and third place for $1,000. All students enrolled in a math, science, or science education curriculum in the State of Texas and out-of-state students in both the U.S. and Mexico conducting research projects in Texas are also eligible for the awards.
A little history: TAS derives the majority of its revenue from membership dues and meeting registration fees. The TAS Board chooses to put a substantial amount of this revenue to support the research of future scientists. TAS appreciates and acknowledges the dedication of Ned Strenth and Don Harper in developing these research awards. Since 1998, TAS has awarded $88,500 directly to support the research of nearly 100 students across all educational areas (Collegiate Academy to M.S. and Ph.D. students). Some of our early student award winners now hold faculty positions at institutions in Texas. All can describe how even a small grant award made a difference in their lives as scientists.
If you would be interested in sponsorship of any of these awards, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the Texas Academy of Science.
