IASNR Bridge Builder Award

IASNR Bridge Builder Award

The Bridge Builder Award is designed to celebrate association members who build bridges across novel boundaries– whether by identity, geographic, disciplinary, knowledge system and/or institutional – of the society and natural resources nexus.  Awardees are celebrated at the annual conference, where they speak about their bridge-building work, are presented with a certificate, and have their registration fees waived.  The Professional Development Committee works with award recipients unable to attend the conference to develop a webinar on their bridge-building activities. 

Selection of the 2022 Bridge Builder Award was determined based on impact and outcome of work, scholarly/professional contribution, novelty of boundaries spanned, and duration of work relative to opportunity, which gives preference to early and mid-career applicants and equal opportunity for applicants across diverse opportunity structures.
