Rising Stars of Entomology Award Symposium

Awards will be granted to five master’s students and five doctoral students from each ESA Section (two from P-IE) to showcase their research in the Rising Stars of Entomology Award Symposium (RSEAS) at the ESA Annual Meeting. This award is intended for graduate students who are near the end of their programs. Students will have the opportunity to expand upon their research beyond the restrictive 10-minutes of the student competitions and gain valuable experience for future career presentations.

Student Activity Award

Sponsored by Bayer Crop Science, this award will be presented annually to recognize a student for outstanding contributions to the Society, his/her academic department, and the community, while still achieving academic excellence.
