DEADLINE, June 25th, 2015
It’s that time again! With registration open for the SEB conference in Clanwilliam, Western Cape, South Africa entitled “Global Vision on Indigenous Plants and Economic Botany” (June 29th to July 2nd, 2015), we would like to call for nominations for the Charles B. Heiser, Jr. Mentor Award.
The Student Committee initiated the Award in 2007 to recognize outstanding economic botanists who have substantially impacted the training and professional development of economic botany and ethnobotany students. The Mentor Award is named in honor of Charles B. Heiser, Jr., Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Indiana University and spotlights dedicated educators who foster the development of the field by example and through student mentoring. A student-nominated award, it acknowledges mentors who are experienced, knowledgeable, trustworthy friends, counselors, and teachers.
Current SEB student members and recent graduates (up to 5 years) are invited to nominate a mentor who has influenced their development in the field of ethnobotany. Students who wish to nominate a mentor should submit a letter explaining why they believe their nominee should be selected for the award to Annie (firstname.lastname@example.org) and John (email@example.com). Selection criteria and more information on the award can be found in the attachment or from the Charles B. Heiser Jr.Mentor Award website (http://cms.gogrid.econbot.org/index.php?module=content&type=user&func=view&pid=49).
Please submit your nomination letters by no later than June 1st, 2015 .
