Attention all graduate students:

The announcement below appeared in the last ISHPSSB Newsletter.  A few
points must be added.  It will be helpful to the committee if you add a
brief vita, which will indicate that you were a graduate student at the time
of the Oaxaca ISHPSSB meeting where your paper was presented.  Also note
that the deadline has been extended to February 15, to correspond with the
date that appeared on the inside back cover of the Newsletter.  Sorry for
any confusion this may have caused.  We look forward to your submissions and

ISHPSSB seeks nominations for the Marjorie Grene Prize.  This prize is
intended to advance the careers of younger scholars, and will be awarded to
the best manuscript based on a paper presented at one of the previous two
ISHPSSB meetings by someone who was, at the time of presentation, a graduate

It is very appropriate for ISHPSSB to name this prize in Marjorie Grene's
honor.  Her work in history and philosophy of biology provides models for
many ISHPSSB members and exemplifies the spirit of pursuing interactions
among the fields within ISHPSSB.  She played a central role in bringing
together scholars for the meetings in the pre-history of ISHPSSB. She has
been a mentor to many members of the Society.

The award will consist of a certificate and up to $200 toward expenses
incurred in attending the 2001 meeting of the Society.  If the manuscript is
not already under review by a journal, the prize committee will promote the
winning entry to one of the leading journals.

The postmark deadline for submissions for the first competition is February
15, 2001. The winning entry will be announced by April 15, 2001.  Send three
copies of manuscripts to:
