This award honors Bill Wood’s many contributions to the initiation and support of the discipline of Biology Education Research, and long-time encouragement and training of students in both science and science education. This award is open to all graduate students who are first authors on an abstract submitted for a talk at SABER. The Abstract Committee reviews all abstracts submitted and selects those to be presented as short talks at the SABER meeting using the published evaluation criteria. The Bill Wood Award Committee then attends each graduate student first-authored short talk at the meeting and selects the winners. Winners are presented a monetary award sponsored by Pearson. We thank Pearson for their generosity!
