Robert C. Hodson Memorial Undergraduate Entomology Award
This award recognizes outstanding undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota, who have demonstrated a keen interest in arthropod biology, via their research experience in the Department of Entomology and excellent academic performance. Research experience can be demonstrated as co-authorship on publications, the presentation of research results at one or more scientific meetings, and/or a letter or recommendation confirming their lab/field research abilities by their primary advisor (faculty, staff or graduate student). Students enrolled in the Insect Science Minor are encouraged to apply, but this is not a requirement of the award. Awards are offered during the Spring semester.
