In 2023 a new graduate student research award was established in memory of AJ Harris. AJ was a long-time member of BSA and and the leading organizer of the Beringia symposium at Botany 2022 in Anchorage, has led Colloquia at Botany Conferences, and was a staunch supporter and promoter of women in botany and diversity at all levels. Her research endeavors were highly integrative, spanning traditional specimen-based science, paleobotany, phylogenomics, biogeography, and computational biology. The new AJ Harris Graduate Student Research Award will be given for the first time in 2024 to a GSRA applicant whose research aligns with AJ's and will be in the amount of $1000. If you would like to be considered for the AJ Harris award please click the checkbox in the award application.
