Harold. M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award

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. 

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.

Weintraub Graduate Student Award

Awardees will participate in a scientific symposium honoring Weintraub and his commitment to innovative science. The award symposium will take place May 3, 2019, 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. Applicants should be advanced students near the completion of their studies.

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. Our goal is to represent a diverse range of research topics. Expenses will be covered by The Fred Hutch Weintraub and Groudine Fund, established to foster intellectual exchange through the promotion of programs for graduate students, fellows and visiting scholars.

Submit your Nomination

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. However, due to differences in research topics and programs, the most qualified students may have already completed their thesis.

Information needed before submission for all applicants:

  • Nominator name, address, email, and telephone number
  • Mentor name, address, email, and telephone number
  • Student nominee name, address, email, and telephone number

Information needed from student's mentor:

  • Letter of recommendation, formatted as a PDF file
    (Please use single spacing, Arial font or similar, and 11pt minimum font size.)

Information needed from student:

  • Student Curriculum Vitae, using template provided (saved as a PDF): Text | MS Word | RTF
  • Summary of thesis research, using template provided (saved as a PDF): Text | MS Word | RTF

The Selection Committee will notify all nominees about their status by February 28, 2019.

Please address questions regarding this award or the symposium to Susan Parkhurst.
