Student Hottest Paper Award


The Student Hottest Paper Award is presented annually to a UTM Biology Graduate Student who published the “hottest” paper in the preceding calendar year.
The criteria for the award are as follows:
  1. The paper must be a peer-reviewed published article presenting original work (e.g., new data and results, equations/theories, resources or methods).
  2. The student must have taken a leading role in the published work either as first author or co-first author.
  3. The majority of the research in the paper must have been conducted while the student was in UTM Biology. Present and former students are both eligible to win the award so long as their paper was published in the preceding year.
The winner, plus two runner-ups, will be selected by a committee that represents the breadth of research interests in the department. The prize will be a cash-prize plus a name on a plaque that will be displayed beside the Hot Student Paper board.
