Denise Gaudreau Award for Excellence in Quaternary Research
The Denise Gaudreau Award recognizes an outstanding woman Ph.D. student for her scientific accomplishments and promise in Quaternary research. This award was established in 1993 in recognition of Dr. Denise Gaudreau’s dedication, accomplishments, and promise as an aspiring Quaternary scientist whose life was taken prematurely by a rare form of Multiple Sclerosis.
Applications: Woman-identifying scientists in any field of Quaternary studies within three years prior to completing a Ph.D. are encouraged to apply. Membership in AMQUA is not required but candidates should be at a North American institution or conducting research focused on North America. Selection will be based on scientific accomplishments relative to career stage, evidence of original thinking, and demonstrated promise in research. Emphasis will be placed on the quality (originality, thoughtfulness, thorough approach, impact, etc.) of all research outcomes including any published work, rather than solely on quantity of published papers. Applications should include: up-to-date CV (no page limit); a statement summarizing your research interests, accomplishments and goals (not to exceed two pages); unofficial copy of graduate transcripts (signed by your graduate advisor); and name, title/affiliation, email address and phone number of two referees who can speak to your research accomplishments and potential. Applicants may reapply as long as eligibility criteria are met. Winners are announced prior to and recognized at AMQUA meetings and receive a monetary prize.
