This award was established to honor Dr. Seymour H. Hutner. It is presented annually, to a Society member within 15 years of their PhD (or comparable terminal degree) who has made outstanding contributions in some area(s) of protistology. Along with the prestige that accompanies this award, recipients are given a cash prize provided by the endowed Hutner Fund and are invited to present a special lecture at the following annual meeting of the Society.
Members are strongly encouraged to submit nominations for the Hutner Prize (to the Chair of the Awards Committee) accompanied by the names of three individuals who could be approached to write supporting letters. Those writing support letters must be familiar with the nominee’s research activity and be authorities in the area of specialty. Nominees will remain in the active file for three years or until the end of their eligibility.
