THE SOCIETY FOR INTEGRATIVE AND COMPARATIVE BIOLOGY
Bartholomew Award: A Society-Wide Award for Early Ph.D. Integrative Biologists

An annual prize may be given to a young investigator for distinguished contributions to comparative physiology and biochemistry or to related fields of functional and integrative biology. The formal title for this award is "The George A. Bartholomew Award." Eligible candidates are those who have completed their doctorate within the past seven (7) years. The Chair of the Division of Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry shall appoint an Award Committee consisting of at least three divisional members with diverse interests to serve as judges. Committee members will normally serve for three years, with at least one member being replaced each year. Candidates may apply directly or be nominated, but both types of candidates will be evaluated equivalently. Applicants shall submit to the Chair of the Award Committee a short description of their work, selected reprints, and a curriculum vita and also request three letters of recommendation. Nominators must arrange for these same materials (except that only two additional letters of recommendation are required) to be submitted to the Committee. The Committee may recommend for approval one candidate to the Chair of the Division. Each year's winner will be invited to present a special address at the Annual Meeting. The Chair of the Division may authorize reimbursement of appropriate expenses incurred by the winner in attending the meeting. The Chair may also authorize a cash prize. The awardee will be presented with a certificate signed by all current Divisional officers. Details for the competition will be announced in the spring newsletter of each year.
