Dr. Anne Stone and Dr. Melissa Wilson Sayres are currently co-chairing the Evolutionary Biology program at Arizona State University.
We are a mid-sized program with 21 current students, and an active community group including a weekly journal club with faculty and students, annual research seminar organized by students, and shared outreach events (like extracting DNA at the ASU homecoming event). Our faculty span multiple units including Biology, Anthropology, Engineering, and Chemistry.

Two upcoming general information sessions are being offered by the National Scholarship Office (NSO)
. These info sessions will introduce students to a range of (inter)nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships. We will also share with students how the NSO can support them during the application process. A third component of these info sessions focuses on steps that students can take to make themselves more competitive candidates for these awards.
These sessions are geared specifically to first- and second-year undergraduates, transfer students, and new graduate students.
Both information sessions will be held in the Multipurpose Room (1303) here at the Honors College (701 W. Grace Street) at the following times:
Friday, October 27, at noon-12:50p, and
Tuesday, October 31, 2-2:50p.
This 4-credit course will provide students with an immersive study of Tropical Ecology with a focus on bird ecology and conservation of coastal and mangrove ecosystems. While in Panama, students will visit and learn about four major ecosystems important to migratory birds including Panama Bay, coastal mangrove wetlands, tropical rainforest, and tropical cloud forest.
A unique blend of rigorous science and community engagement in both Panama and Richmond, participants will have opportunities work with local biologists, conservationists, and collaborators from other Universities as part of an international team of researchers.
Program dates: January 2 – January 15, 2018
