The Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award recognizes outstanding achievement during graduate studies in the biological sciences.
Fred Hutch established this annual award to honor the bold, creative, pioneering spirit embodied by Hal Weintraub. Weintraub also earned deep respect and admiration as a caring mentor and supportive colleague.
Awardees will participate in a scientific symposium honoring Weintraub and his commitment to innovative science. The award symposium will take place May 3, 2024, at Fred Hutch's Robert W. Day Campus. The symposium will consist of scientific presentations by the graduate student awardees and informal gatherings of students and faculty.
A committee consisting of Fred Hutch faculty and students will select up to twelve awardees from the nominations on the basis of quality, originality, and scientific significance, as well as to represent a diverse range of research topics. Expenses will be covered by the Weintraub/Groudine Fellowship for Science and Human Disease, established to foster intellectual exchange through the promotion of programs for graduate students, fellows and visiting scholars.
Only one nomination may be submitted per department or program.
Since the awardees will present their thesis work at the Weintraub Symposium, we envision them as advanced students near the completion of their studies. Ideally, students should not have completed their thesis before September 2023. However, due to differences in research topics and programs, the most qualified students may have already completed their thesis.
Nominations should be submitted by the Chair/Head of the Department/Program or their designee. We are adopting a new system for submitting nominations. If you have questions, please contact email@example.com.
