The three top finalists receive cash prizes of $5,000, $3,000, and $1,000. In addition, seven other finalists have been named winners of the ASCB Beckman Coulter Distinguished Graduate Student Achievement Prize and have received travel awards to attend the forthcoming American Society for Cell Biology Annual Meeting, December 13-15, 2015, San Diego, California, USA.

All ten of the finalists will speak at a Kaluza mini-symposium to be held on Monday, December 14th in Room 32B at the San Diego Convention Center.

In addition to presenting at the Kaluza mini-symposium, the winners will be honored at the Kaluza Award presentation and Porter Lecture to be held in Ballroom 20 at the San Diego Convention Center on Sunday, December 13, 2015.

Applicants for the Prizes were required to submit a one-page essay describing their research. An ASCB selection committee evaluated each entry based on the significance of the discoveries they have made.
