The winners of the Owen Aldis Awards for 2015 have been announced. The Owen F. Aldis Scholarship Fund was established to support graduate studies in human ethology, defined as the biological study of human behaviour. The goal of the Award is to nurture excellence in human ethology by supporting students who are undertaking empirical research in human behavior, drawing on the repertoire of methods developed in biology and the human behavioral sciences. Up to US$8,000 per recipient is available each year. See the Owen Aldis Scholarships page for more information on this scheme.
