The Lawrence S. Dillon Distinguished Graduate Student Award was established in 2001 by Patricia Dillon Moore in memory of her father, a former professor in the department of biology. Dr. Dillon received his Masterʼs degree from A&M in 1950 and Doctoral degree from A&M in 1954. Dr. Dillon eventually became a professor in the department, and in 1975 he became professor emeritus. Dr. Dillon passed away in 1999, after which his daughter established this award in his memory to be presented to graduate students who excel in either research or teaching.
The Lawrence S. Dillon Distinguished Graduate Student Award is for Research and Teaching, and is open to Biology Graduate Students. The award is $1,000. Please submit the student’s CV and one letter from the research advisor and one letter from the teaching advisor (or one combined letter if you are both).
