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. Since the awardees will present their thesis work at the Weintraub Symposium, we envision them as advanced students near the completion of their studies. Ideally, students should not have completed their thesis before September 2020. However, due to differences in research topics and programs, the most qualified students may have already completed their thesis.
