The AES Grant Fund Committee gives one student research award each year for research on elasmobranchs. The award is presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society.
Students who are currently enrolled in a degree program (undergraduate or graduate), who are in at least his or her second year of AES membership, and who are currently members in good standing of AES are eligible to apply.

The ranking criteria form used by the Committee Members is available for students to help refine their proposals based on the judging criteria. Emphasis will also be placed on how crucial the additional funding would be to the progress (or completion) of the research project.
