The George R. Abbe Student Research Grant is a competitive grant established in 2013 that is awarded annually to recognize excellence in the areas of crustacean biology and fisheries management.

The George R. Abbe Student Research Grant is named in honor of an Honored Life Member, distinguished past President, and long-term Member of the Executive Committee, having served for over 25 years as Chair of the Audit, Budget and Finance Committee. The Award is reflective of George Abbe’s research interests including long-term population monitoring, and research on Chesapeake Bay blue crab and eastern oysters.
