Founders Awards: Graduate Student Paper Competition

Deadline: July 20, 2022 


These awards are in honor of Montford F. Piercey and Duncan McCarthy for their contributions in organizing and maintaining our chapter. It is meant to showcase the research accomplishments of two graduate student members of the Chapter.

The prize for the Founders Award is $250, a plaque, and an opportunity to present a 15 minute slide presentation (based on the paper submitted) during the annual chapter meeting.


Entrants are required to submit both a regular meeting abstract as first author and a short paper describing their research in greater detail.


  • All entrants are expected to present their poster presentation if their paper is not selected as the Founder’s Award paper for this year’s meeting.  

  • All entrants must both register and pay for the annual meeting to be considered.
