The Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award recognizes outstanding achievment during graduate studies in the biological sciences.
Fred Hutch established this annual award to honor the bold, creative, pioneering spirit embodied by Hal Weintraub. Weintraub also earned deep respect and admiration as a caring mentor and supportive colleague.
Nominations are accepted annually between October 1 and December 15.
Awardees will participate in a scientific symposium honoring Weintraub and his commitment to innovative science. The award symposium will take place May 7, 2021, at Fred Hutch's Robert W. Day Campus. The symposium will consist of scientific presentations by the graduate student awardees and informal gatherings of students and faculty.
A committee consisting of Fred Hutch faculty and students will select up to twelve awardees from the nominations on the basis of quality, originality, and scientific significance, as well as to represent a diverse range of research topics. Expenses will be covered by The Fred Hutch Weintraub and Groudine Fund, established to foster intellectual exchange through the promotion of programs for graduate students, fellows and visiting scholars.
