The David Starr Jordan Prize
for Innovative Contributions to the Study of
Evolution, Ecology, Population or Organismal Biology

In 1986, Cornell, Indiana and Stanford Universities established a joint
endowment to fund a prize in honor of David Starr Jordan, a scientist,
educator, and institution builder with important ties to each of these
institutions.  The prize is international in scope and presented
approximately every three years to a young scientist (normally 40 years
of age or less, or with not more than 10 years since receipt of Ph.D.)
who is making novel, innovative contributions in one or more of the
areas of Jordan's interest:  evolution, ecology, population and
organismal biology.

The intent of this prize is to recognize young scientists who are making
research contributions likely to redirect the principal focus of their
fields.  In addition to a cash award, the recipient will receive a
commemorative medal and will attend an awards ceremony, visit each of
the institutions and give scholarly presentations of his/her work.  The
selection of the prize winner will be made by a committee composed of
representatives from each of the three institutions.

The Fourth David Starr Jordan Award will carry a prize of $15,000 and
will be announced in mid 1998.  Nomination forms are available from:
