In 2022, the Louis M. Herman Research Scholarship received 17 proposals from Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Hong Kong SAR, Madagascar, Mexico, Nicaragua, Scotland and the United States of America. The quality of submissions was extremely high, so much so that the Awards Committee is delighted to announce that this year there are two successful applicants: “Eavesdropping on Whales – Does Humpback Whale Song Convey Genetic Quality?” submitted by Franca Eichenberger of the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, and “Exploring vocal development in humpback whales” submitted by Julia Zeh of Syracuse University, the United States of America. We are so excited about both of these projects that do so much to honor Dr. Herman’s legacy. You can learn more about their projects here.
