Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) strives to recognize
and honor outstanding contributions of individuals or groups of individuals to
the environmental sciences and to the Society by means the Awards Program.
SETAC also endeavors to recognize and honor the participation of students and
pre-professionals in the Society and to use Society resources to enhance their
professional development. SETAC awards may be global in stature, or may
recognize contributions at the geographic unit level.
SETAC Global Awards Committee has been developed under the auspices of the
SETAC World Council, supporting the continuing efforts of globalization. The
charge of the Global Awards Committee is to reflect the overall intent of the
awards and fellowships process, but at a global level. Its scope encompasses
contributions and achievements throughout all geographic units.
units also have award committees. Both the SETAC Europe Awards and the SETAC
North America Awards support the development and participation of students in
the Society's activities, as well as recognizing the professional and technical
contributions of its members. Although many awards are open only to members of SETAC, some are open to nonmembers as well. Candidates for all awards may be self-nominated, or nominated by another
individual. Because Asia/Pacific Awards and Latin America Awards are currently
under development, candidates from these geographic units are encouraged to
apply for awards from North America and Europe.
