AGA Symposia are small meetings that provide excellent opportunities for cross-stage interaction, and the American Genetics Association is committed to supporting early-stage attendees.
The American Genetic Association has established the Robert K. Wayne Conservation Scholarship and Research Fund to support graduate students whose research directly benefits a threatened species. The AGA has provided an initial endowment to support the first $6000 scholarship (awarded to Kyle Jaynes in 2023), and welcomes donations from members of our community who wish to grow the impact of this Fund in Bob’s honor.
AGA2020: Genes as Environment - President Kimberly Hughes
AGA2019: Sex and Asex - President Maria Orive
AGA2018: Origins of Adaptive Radiation - President Rosemary Gillespie
AGA2017: Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics in the Wild - President Anne Bronikowski
AGA2016: Local Adaptation - President Lynda Delph
AGA2015: Chromosome Evolution - President Katie Peichel
AGA2014: Evolution and Plasticity - President Robin Waples
AGA2013: Speciation Continuum - President Kerry Shaw
The AGA's EECG Research Awards provide funds to support the final stages of genomic research projects for grad students and postdocs.
Watch for upcoming EECG Embarkations -- Posts from the awardees about their research and interests, available on the AGA Blog.
The AGA grants awards each year to its members for support of special events that advance the mission of AGA, particularly to support students to attend the event.
We are committed to accomplishing this mission together with the most inclusive group of members and contributors possible, unrestricted by race, gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliation, or background. We have worked and will continue to work to broaden participation in this field to reflect the diversity of our broader community. We adamantly oppose any forms of discrimination, and we enthusiastically support the dissemination of peer-reviewed scientific research results to other scientists and the public at large.
The Fifth Global Invertebrate Genome Alliance meeting will be this fall in beautiful Cartegena, Colombia. Competitive student registration/travel vouchers sponsored by the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation and the AGA.
Details will be available soon.
Six PhD students and four postdocs receive funding.
Two US workshops and one student-led Canadian conference received funding
Alison Miller wins award for best student-authored paper in the 2022 volume of Journal of Heredity
3 courses and workshops receive funding
Thirteen students/postdocs receive award funding for research projects

The mission of the American Genetic Association is to encourage the study of comparative genetics and genomics, and to promote the application of genetic and genomic methods to the documentation, conservation, and management of organismal diversity. We are committed to accomplishing this mission together with the most inclusive group of members and contributors possible, unrestricted by race, gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliation, or background. We have worked and will continue to work to broaden participation in this field to reflect the diversity of our broader community. We adamantly oppose any forms of discrimination, and we enthusiastically support the dissemination of peer-reviewed scientific research results to other scientists and the public at large. If any of our members have ideas they would like to share on how we can further achieve this mission, without the influence of politics, we welcome them to do so by contacting your representatives in our society-- the officers and council members: http://www.theaga.org/council.htm
