SOT 2019 Awards Season Opened July 1!


The SOT 2019 Awards Season formally opened on July 1, 2018. Award nominations and applications, for most awards, are due by October 9, 2018.

You are encouraged to submit a nomination or an application for an Award. There are many prestigious awards to recognize colleagues for their work, such as the Merit and Founder’s Awards. Award information, criteria, and nomination or application details for all awards are available on the Awards section of the SOT website. Please review the award descriptions and familiarize yourself with the requirements and, most importantly, take the next step and nominate or apply for a 2019 SOT Award.

It is not too early to begin the submission process and it is an opportunity to collaborate with your colleagues. Many of SOT’s prominent awards require two Full members of the Society to provide a primary and secondary letter of nomination. No additional letters of nomination beyond the required letters will be reviewed by the Awards Committee.

  • Researchers
  • Postdoctoral Scholars
  • Graduate Students
  • Regional Chapter, Special Interest Group, or Specialty Section Members

Please note: Several awards, including the Graduate Student Travel Support Awards, Pfizer Undergraduate, Undergraduate Diversity, and Perry J. Gehring Diversity Awards, require that the applicant submit an abstract for the SOT Annual Meeting. All abstracts for the 2019 SOT Annual Meeting are to be submitted online by October 19, 2018. Please pay close attention to the deadlines when applying for these awards as deadlines may differ.
