The AGA grants EECG Research Awards each year to graduate and post-doctoral researchers who are at a critical point in their research, where additional funds would allow them to conclude their research project and prepare it for publication.
28 students and post-docs applied for funding this year, and 10 received funding (Table 1). One recipient, Kyle Jaynes, received the first Robert K. Wayne Conservation Scholarship and Research Award. This special EECG award was established in memory of Robert Wayne to support graduate students whose research directly benefits a threatened species.
