​The Clark Hubbs Research Award was established in 1986 to support travel expenses associated with professional development. It is offered annually to AIFRB graduate students and other Associate members of the Institute in good standing. The award is granted to cover travel expenses associated with presenting results of an original research paper or research project of merit at scientific meetings or to conduct research at distant study sites. The Award provides a maximum of $500.00; an individual may receive two awards in a lifetime. Three committee members are appointed by the President and are responsible for reviewing and selecting recipients for the awards. The number of awards varies depending on the annual budget approved by the Board.
