Research Awards

Since 1993, PRI has presented several annual awards. These awards are designed to recognize and encourage excellence in paleontology, particularly systematic paleontology (the branch of the discipline concerned with the description and analysis of the diversity of ancient life), across a broad spectrum of practitioners. These awards have served an important role for PRI: they expand awareness of the Institution in several of our core audiences; they further our educational mission by encouraging science; and they cultivate potential supporters.
