To recognize students who have been primarily responsible for the design and/or conduct of the submitted research project.
Applicants must be Masters or doctoral students (or have completed their degrees during the previous Fall term) when they apply. PhD students who have completed MA/MS degrees within the previous 18 months may apply for the Alexander Award using their Master’s research, but are not eligible to receive another graduate honorarium for work on a related project at the same institution; however, recipients of ASM Grant-in-Aid of Research and other student research grants (Latin American Graduate Student Field Research Award, African Graduate Student Research Fund, James L. Patton Award, Student Science Policy Award) are eligible and encouraged to apply.
Selection will be based on the originality, quality and presentation of research and the advisor’s letter of support.
