This award, established in memory of Dr. Jeffery Paul La Fage, recognizes a graduate student for their work on a species of social insect that is considered a pest. Dr. La Fage, a Professor of Entomology at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, studied the biology and control of the invasive subterranean termite Coptotermes formosanus.
The award is given to a student who, in the opinion of the Student Award Committee, advanced or contributed significantly to the knowledge of the biology or control of pestiferous social insects. The award carries with it a plaque and US$500 honorarium, and the recipient will be recognized at that year’s annual business meeting.
