Adolph Bolliger Award
The Adolph Bolliger Award commemorates Adolph Bolliger (1897-1962), a distinguished Australian mammalogist and founding member of the Society. The award is made for the best spoken presentation by a student at an Annual Meeting of the Society.
The award consists of a certificate and a monetary prize of $500. The mode of payment will be determined by the Council and payment arranged with the student after the conference.
- Only student members of the Society are eligible.
- The applicant must be the sole or senior author of the paper for which the award is made.
- In the case of multiple authors, students must provide to Council a statement describing the contribution of other authors to the research.
- Submitted applications will be short-listed by the Council for consideration for the award prior to the Annual Meeting.
- A judging panel will be appointed by the Council to assess short-listed applicants for the award at the Annual Scientific Meeting.
- Bolliger Award recipients are eligible for a Student Travel Award but not the John Seebeck Award.
