The David Starr Jordan Prize
For Innovative Contributions
to the Study of
Evolution, Ecology, Population and
In 1986, Cornell, Indiana and Stanford Universities established a joint
endowment to fund a prize in honor of David Starr Jordan, a scientist,
educator and institution builder, who had enormous infuence on higher
education in the United States and important ties to each of these universities. The prize is international in scope and presented approximately every
three years to a young scientist (not over the age of 40 at the deadline for
nomination, or if over 40, less than 10 years since receiving the Ph.D.).
The intent of this prize is to recognize young scientists who are making
novel innovative contributions in one or more areas of Jordan’s interest:
evolution, ecology, population and organismal biology, and who are likely
to redirect the principal foci of their felds. In addition to a $20,000 cash
award, the recipient will receive a commemorative medal, will attend
an awards ceremony, visit each of the sponsoring institutions and give
scholarly presentations of his/her work. The selection of the prize winner
will be made by a committee composed of representatives from each of
the three institutions. This year the award ceremony will be held at Indiana
