Libbie H. Hyman Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship, in memory of Libbie H. Hyman, one of America's foremost invertebrate zoologists, provides assistance to students to take courses or to pursue research on invertebrates at a marine, freshwater, or terrestrial field station. The Hyman Grant is intended to help support a first meaningful field-station experience for a first- or second-year graduate student, or an advanced undergraduate.

ELIGIBILITY and AWARD PARAMETERS:

  • Awards are limited to undergraduates or graduate students currently enrolled in degree programs; priority will be given to advanced undergraduates or early graduate students. Previous recipients of this scholarship are not eligible unless they encountered exceptional circumstances regarding the use of their award and the scholarship committee chair has specifically approved their re-eligibility.
  • Applicants do NOT need to be members of SICB.
  • Funds must be used to support coursework or research on invertebrates at a field station.
  • Most awards are in the range of $1000-$5000. When preparing your application, include a complete and detailed budget, even if it exceeds $5000.
  • Priority will be given to projects that represent the first significant field station experience for a student. We advise applicants to address in their materials how their proposed project would work towards this goal.
  • This award supports in-person field station experiences; funds are not transferrable to alternative activities. In the event that a scholarship recipient is unable to pursue the activities detailed in their proposal (e.g., due to unforeseen travel restrictions, course cancellation, or health issues) the recipient must inform the scholarship committee, which will review each case individually. If it is determined that the recipient will not be able to use the funds for an eligible experience, the funds will be retained by SICB and the recipient will be allowed to apply in future funding cycles (subject to all other eligibility requirements).

How to apply: Read the instructions carefully, fill in the online application form, and upload transcripts as directed. Letters of recommendation will be uploaded directly by the recommenders.

Ecological Biomechanics

This graduate level course uses an engineering perspective to evaluate the mechanical design of marine organisms. We will study the basic mechanics of fluids and solids to develop an understanding of the diversity of ways organisms construct materials, organize body plans, and interact with other organisms and their environment.  The first three weeks will introduce biomechanical theories and techniques through lectures, laboratory exercises, and field activities. The final two weeks are devoted to independent student research projects.

Credits: 9

Instructor(s): Dr. Emily Carrington , Dr. Mark Denny

Prerequisites: N/A 

Enrollment is limited to 18 students and scholarships are available. Late applications will be considered if space is available.
