AWARDS

 

Irvin Glassman Young Investigator Lecture

This award recognizes a young investigator in the Eastern States within a specified time period after earning their Ph.D. (and before tenure if in a tenure-track faculty appointment). Prior to 2021, the nominee must have been within seven years of their Ph.D. conferral; starting in 2021, the nominee must be within ten years of their Ph.D. conferral.  The awardee receives waived registration, a travel award of up to $1000, and a $500 honorarium to give the Irvin Glassman Lecture as one of the plenary or invited topical talks at the ESS meeting.
