Charles H. Turner Program

This year's online Charles H. Turner Program will engage students in professional development activities, cohort building, and identity tasks that will celebrate the uniqueness of "Being a Turner.” Selectees will work one-on-one with mentors and facilitators, in cohorts of their peers, and in individual reflection to understand how graduate education and membership in the Animal Behavior Society may become part of their professional trajectory. The application submission guidelines are available here, and the application deadline is June 22, 2020. Please contact the ABS Diversity Committee at: diversity@animalbehaviorsociety.org, with any questions.
