description:

In 1986, Cornell University, Indiana University, and Stanford University established a joint endowment to fund a prize in honor of David Starr Jordan who had ties to all three institutions. The prize is international in scope and presented approximately every three years to a young scientist (40 years of age or less) who is making novel innovative contributions in one or more areas of Jordan’s interest: evolution, ecology, population and organismal biology. The intent of this prize is to recognize young scientists who are making research contributions likely to redirect the principal foci of their fields. In addition to a cash award, the recipient receives a commemorative medal, attends an awards ceremony, visits each of the sponsoring institutions and gives a scholarly presentations of his/her work. The selection of the prize winner is made by a committee composed of representatives from each of the three institutions. For an image of the reverse side of this medal see image P0028544.
