University of Central Florida Travel Award
BGSA Travel Award in Memory of Boyd Lyon
The Biology Graduate Student Association distributes an award for conference travel to an outstanding BGSA member each semester to assist members in presenting their research. This award was renamed the Boyd Lyon Memorial Travel Award in 2006 in memory of Boyd Lyon, a graduate student and a member of the turtle research crew who passed away while conducting turtle research. Boyd believed that it was important for researchers to travel to conferences to present research, share ideas, and participate in the scientific community.
