DEADLINE, May 28th, 2017
Dear SEB Student Members,
With registration still open for the 58th SEB Annual Conference and the II Encontro Hispano Português de Etnobiologia entitled “Living in a global world: ethnobotany, local knowledge, and sustainability” (June 4-9, 2017), we would like to issue a 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 3 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 Sandra (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Alexander (email@example.com).
Eligibility criteria for nominated Mentors:
1. Open to SEB members (closed to non-members)
2. Closed to previous awardees
Eligibility Criteria for Students to Nominate a Mentor:
Students and recent graduates (within 3 years) who are current SEB members
Please submit your nomination letters by no later than May 28th, 2017.
