About this funder:



The American Elasmobranch Society (AES) is committed to and proud of its student membership, and so supports and awards student research through multiple avenues.

Established in 1999 as the AES Student Poster Award to recognize the outstanding poster delivered by an AES student member during the Annual Meeting, this award has since been generously endowed by Jeff and Carol Carrier. As a result, the award has been renamed to honor the Carriers, who have been longtime advocates of student participation in the Society.

Distinct advantages of a poster include the opportunity to display research data and results for in depth perusal rather than for a brief glimpse during a slide presentation, an atmosphere that is more conducive to dialogs or discussions that are not constrained by time, and an environment that is more relaxed and less likely to produce the same level of anxiety that often precedes an oral presentation. Posters also provide a wonderful forum to present preliminary data or research that might be considered by the author to be incomplete. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Applicants must:
    • Be enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student, or have completed his/her degree within 12 months of the presentation
    • Be in at least his or her second year of AES membership
    • Be a member in good standing of AES
    • Be first or sole author of a contributed paper
    • Indicate at the time of abstract submission his/her intention to compete for the appropriate award. 

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Applicants must be in at least his or her second year of AES membership and be a member in good standing of AES. Remember that to be a "member in good standing," students must renew their student memberships by the end of the calendar year.


  • Interested students must apply for the Carrier at the time of abstract submission. Late entries will no longer be accepted.
