Awardees Announced for Jeanne and Tschinkel Grants

Congratulations to our 2017 award winners of the Tschinkel Ant Natural History Research Grant and the Robert L. and Louise B. Jeanne Social Wasp Research Grant.

2017 Tschinkel Ant Natural History Research Grant: Kim Drager
2017 Robert L. and Louise B. Jeanne Social Wasp Research Grant: Katherine Fiocca

Unfortunately, no award will be given this year for the William L. and Ruth D. Nutting Research Grant, because the Awards Committee received no applications.

A big THANK YOU to our IUSSI-NAS Awards Committee: Terry McGlynn and Stephen Pratt (Co-Chairs), Rebecca Clark, Hongmei Li-Byarlay, Juliana Rangel, and Chris Smith.
