Overview:

The AWMS committee decided during 2011 that greater acknowledgement of student achievements was required. It was agreed that an annual award should be made to a student member for a thesis of excellence within the field of scientifically-based wildlife management research. Such an award would be structured to ensure that the student’s research activities are brought to the attention of the broader AWMS membership, and that the student is encouraged to maintain ongoing active involvement with the society.
