CESCA Awards

 

New!  2016 Awardees were announced at the CESCA Day 2016.
 

The CESCA faculty members have established new awards to be given each year to students who have made the most significant contributions to the research, education, and service activities of CESCA.  There are four categories of student awards: CESCA Outstanding Student Awards, CESCA Best Presentation Awards, CESCA Day Best Poster Awards, and CESCA Outstanding Service Awards.  The candidates will be nominated and selected by the CESCA faculty members during the spring semesters.  We will honor the awardees during our annual CESCA Day event in spring.  

The detailed selection criteria are listed as follows:

CESCA Outstanding Student Award

Students who have published five or more first-author papers in top journals or peer-reviewed conferences will be eligible for competing for this award. Each student can receive this award at most once. However, there may be more than one recipient per year.

CESCA Best Presentation Award

Students who have published a journal or conference paper in that year will be eligible for competing for this award. The winner -- one per year -- will be decided jointly by the CESCA faculty members.  

CESCA Day Best Poster Award

Students who participate in the poster sessions during our annual CESCA Day event will be eligible for competing for this award. The winner -- one per year -- will be decided jointly by the CESCA faculty members.

CESCA Outstanding Service Award

Students who have made significant contributions to improving the academic, research, educational, and social environment of CESCA will be eligible for competing for this award. The recipient -- one per year -- will be decided jointly by the CESCA faculty members.
