We are seeking nominations for outstanding graduate students for the Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award to recognize outstanding achievement during graduate studies in the biological sciences. The Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award recognizes outstanding achievement during graduate studies in the biological sciences.
Awardees will participate in a scientific symposium honoring Hal Weintraub and his commitment to innovative science. The award symposium will take place May 4, 2018, at Fred Hutch's Robert W. Day Campus. The award symposium will consist of scientific presentations by the graduate student awardees, and informal gatherings of students and faculty. We envision the graduate student awardees to be advanced students near the completion of their studies. A selection committee consisting of Fred Hutch faculty and students will select up to twelve graduate student awardees from among those nominated on the basis of quality, originality, and significance of their work, as well as to represent a diverse range of research topics. The Fred Hutch Weintraub and Groudine Fund, established to foster intellectual exchange through the promotion of programs for graduate students, fellows and visiting scholars, will cover expenses for the graduate student awardees.
One nomination may be submitted per department or program. The nomination should be submitted ONLINE by the department/program chairperson and include the student's CV, a one page description of the thesis work conducted, and a recommendation letter from the student's mentor. Nominations are accepted annually between October 1 and December 15.
Questions regarding this Award or Symposium should be addressed to Susan Parkhurst.
