The study of insect science can provide a fascinating and rewarding career.
Typically, entomologists study insects and their relationships to the environment, humans, animals and other organisms. The science of entomology provides many opportunities to those interested in the diversity of nature – from studying insects related to human and animal health, quality of life, crop and forest management, discovering new species, forensics used in crime scenes, and in many other areas.
What is the SysEB Student Research Endowment?
The SysEB Student Research Endowment is a permanent ESA endowment that provides research-enhancement awards for graduate and undergraduate students who are members in good standing of the Systematics, Evolution and Biodiversity (SysEB) section of the Entomological Society of America (ESA).
The Eastern Branch of the Entomological Society of America recognizes an outstanding Masters level graduate student each year through the presentation of the Asa Fitch Memorial Award. The award consists of $250 and a certificate. In addition, the recipient will be recognized, and asked to give a 25- minute research presentation at the Eastern Branch Annual Meeting.
Southeastern Branch Student Display Awards are given to the M.S. and Ph.D. students who present the best research papers in a display format at the annual Branch meeting. The award is based on both presentation of the display and a written summary. Recipients of the ESA-SEB Outstanding Student Display Presentation Awards each receive $100 cash and a plaque. The awards are presented at the ESA-SEB annual meeting Awards Luncheon and the recipients are encouraged to be present to receive the award.
