Description

An engraved plaque and cash stipend ($500) will be awarded to the student whose abstract best addresses the environmental health issues that were the focus of Dr. Mary Amdur’s career. Dr. Amdur was a pioneer in air pollution toxicology, who overcame gender, political, and scientific barriers to proclaim the potential for interactions between specific air pollutants. More information on Dr. Amdur’s career can be found here.

The nomination should include one pdf document that contains:

  1. A copy of the abstract submitted to the Program Committee.
  2. A letter of nomination from the student’s sponsor.
  3. A 1-page statement (single spaced, normal margins, Arial font 11) written by the applicant. The statement should include the rationale for the study, the significance of the results, and the student’s role in the work. The applicant should emphasize the relationship between their work and Dr. Amdur’s career, and how Dr. Amdur’s career has inspired their career path. Nominees must be members of the Inhalation and Respiratory Specialty Section.

In a given year, students can only apply to either the Mary Amdur Award or the Student Award, but not both.

Each sponsor can only nominate one student for each award category.

Questions? Email the Vice President-Elect of the IRSS, Christopher Reilly.

A list of past recipients of the Mary Amdur Student award and their research can be found here.
