The purpose of this ESA award is to encourage graduate students working with insects or other arthropods in the broad areas of physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology to affiliate with ESA's Integrative Physiological and Molecular Insect Systems Section and to attend the ESA Annual Meeting.

This award was established by Dorothy Feir, 1989 president of ESA, as a tribute to her parents who, at considerable self-sacrifice, encouraged education and travel experience for their daughters. This award includes a cash prize, based on earnings from the investment, and a plaque, which is presented at the ESA Annual Meeting. The winner also will be presented to Systematics, Evolution, & Biodiversity at the meeting he or she attends.

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


  • All students using arthropods to study any aspect of basic or applied physiology, biochemistry, or molecular biology in the broadest sense for their Master's or doctoral research are eligible to apply.
  • Students from all science departments are encouraged to apply.
  • The applicant does not have to present a paper in order to receive the award.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. The winner must be an ESA student member at the time he/she applies for this award.


  • A student may re-apply but preference will be given to a student who has not received the award previously.
