About Early Graduate Student Researcher Award

The Early Graduate Student Researcher Award (EGSRA) recognizes students for conducting outstanding research early in their graduate training. It focuses on both the student’s general research experience and specific completed research projects.

Research may be in any area, including basic, applied, translational, and interdisciplinary science. Early graduate student researchers will be evaluated primarily on the scientific and practical significance of their research, though other research-oriented activities will be considered as well.
