American Society for Cell Biology Graduate Student Research Competition

Modified: June 17, 2015

The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is offering the ASCB Kaluza Prize supported by Beckman Coulter to honor academic excellence in graduate student research:

  • Three top winners will receive cash prizes of $5,000, $3,000, and $1,000
  • Top 10 finalists receive travel awards to attend the 2015 ASCB Annual Meeting in San Diego December 12-16 and will be invited to speak at a Minisymposium

These prizes are part of a partnership between ASCB and Beckman Coulter Life Sciences to support excellence in science. Both ASCB and Beckman Coulter recognize the challenging times that trainees in biomedical research face. ASCB and Beckman Coulter are both determined to do everything possible to keep from losing the next generation of scientists.

All entrants in the competition must be ASCB members who are current graduate students or researchers who received their PhD within two years of this year's application deadline of July 31. Not a member? Not a problem. Join now. Both U.S. and international scientists are welcome to apply. Applicants from previous years who are still within the time window of eligibility may apply again.

Applicants must submit a one-page essay describing their research accomplishments (maximum 600 words), plus a CV in one combined PDF at http://ascb.org/kaluzaprizes/. The application deadline is Friday, July 31.
