Applications are open for the 2020 Louis M. Herman Research Scholarship! Deadline to apply is February 17, 2020.
The Louis M.

Work with other marine mammals that especially enhances our understanding of their cognitive abilities will also be considered. Eligible candidates include graduate students and those students who have completed their Masters or PhD within the past three years.
