The award consists of $5,000, a certificate, and a $40,000 unrestricted research grant to be assigned by the recipient to any university or nonprofit institution. The recipient is required to deliver an awards address at the Arthur C. Cope Symposium. Up to $2,500 for travel expenses to the fall national meeting will be reimbursed.
