Funding Opportunities

To honor Jim’s memory and his belief in the explanatory power of a compelling scientific image, we have established the Goodson Prize for Art in Science. This yearly award recognizes outstanding research images from CISAB members that are not just scientifically meaningful but are also beautiful. Submissions are invited each spring, and the winner is announced at the Animal Behavior Conference. Winning images are showcased both in the CISAB house and on our website.
