To encourage diligent young scientists, the SGP has created an awards program which recognizes excellence in physiology. In addition to our Symposium Awards, the SGP also supports both aspiring and independent young investigators through its traditional Cranefield Award and two new awards.

In 2005, SGP instituted two new Paul F. Cranefield awards, one each to be given annually to a deserving postdoctoral fellow and a graduate student who are the first authors of manuscripts published in Journal of General Physiology. In truly exceptional cases, undergraduate students will be considered for a third award.
To be considered for such an award, the candidate must have had a major role in the planning, execution, and analysis of the results - and contributed significantly to the writing. Candidates shall write a one-page summary of the work, emphasizing its overall significance and describing specifically his or her contributions to the research and writing, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awardees will receive $1000 in addition to being featured on the Society's website.
