Eligibility:

 

 

 

To Apply:

Dr. William H. Luckmann served as a researcher and administrator for applied entomological programs at the Illinois Natural History Survey from 1949 through 1984. His work contributed greatly to advances in integrated pest management in field and vegetable crops. Upon his retirement, an endowment was established to foster and reward research in applied entomology.

The first William H. Luckmann Award was granted in 1994. The 2016 award will provide $1,000 for travel, lodging, and related expenses for presenting research results at the North Central Branch, ESA, Annual Meeting of the ESA, or a meeting of another appropriate professional scientific society. Participation in professional society meetings provides students with valuable experience and professional contacts.

 

Current graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Illinois are eligible to compete for this award. Research may be carried out in any department of the University, may be basic and/or applied, but should have some focus on aspects of applied entomology such as arthropod pest management, use of insects in biological control programs, pollinators, or natural areas health. The research may be carried out for agricultural, horticultural, urban, medical or natural areas systems. Previous award winners are not eligible to apply.

 

Completion of application form and a brief written summary of the applicant’s research goals, methods, and results is required. Please submit the application as one document.
