IACS Young Writer's Award

The IACS Young Writer’s Award is granted to a graduate or undergraduate student working with a faculty member or affiliate of the institute. The award consists of a one-time prize of $500 to celebrate the student’s first paper that is accepted in a peer-reviewed publication. You do not have to be the first author. Only full-time, fully supported students are eligible to receive this award. Both international and domestic students are eligible.

Students cannot name themselves for selection. Faculty supervisors must propose students for the award based on the faculty member’s assessment of the student’s first significant publication. Faculty must submit the student's name, department, title of paper, name and date of publication to iacs@stonybrook.edu. Award winners may be required to present their papers at an annual IACS event in honor of their achievements.
