Emanuel D. Rudolph Award - Historical
Each year the Historical Section of the Botanical Society will offer an award for the best student presentation of a historical nature at the annual meetings. A judging committee evaluates each student presentation and selects a winner based on the quality of the work and the presentation. The recipient of the award receives a certificate, a cash award, and is a guest of the Section at the BSA banquet.
