ABS 2020 Charles H. Turner Award
This year's Charles H. Turner program will engage students in
professional development activities, cohort building, and identity tasks
that will celebrate the uniqueness of "Being a Turner".
Charles Turner was one of the very first African-American researchers in animal behavior. Among other things, his research
focused on insect sensory biology and task learning. By naming the undergraduate program after him, the ABS Diversity
Committee emphasizes its goal to increase the diversity of its membership by encouraging researchers of all ages, levels, and
ethnic groups to participate in the annual meetings.
To Apply: Applicants for the Turner award may be at any stage of their undergraduate career (not secondary school) or recently graduated, but may not have finished their undergraduate degree earlier than the end of the fall semester prior to
the annual meeting covered by the award. Applicants will be required to have one individual familiar with your academic or research work prepare a letter of recommendation and submit it as part of their application by the deadline.
This year's Charles H. Turner program will engage students in professional development activities, cohort building, and identity tasks that will celebrate the uniqueness of "Being a Turner.” Selectees will work one-on-one with mentors and facilitators, in cohorts of their peers, and in individual reflection to understand how graduate education and membership in the Animal Behavior Society may become part of their professional trajectory.
