This award honors the late Barbara McClintock, who won the Nobel Prize for work that she began as a postdoctoral plant geneticist at Cornell in the 1920s. The endowment for the award came from Dr. Robert Rabson, who enabled much novel plant physiology research through his long leadership of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Biosciences Division. Primary consideration is given to a graduate student’s background and potential. Students must also have completed at least two years of their M.S./Ph.D. or Ph.D. program, and made unique and outstanding contributions in research and teaching.
