Header image for SCB Awards

SCB is proud of the career achievements of its members and the outstanding contributions they make to biodiversity conservation and we honor those achievements through an official awards program.

SCB presents global or regional awards, depending on the year. Global awards are presented in years that SCB hosts its International Congress for Conservation Biology. Regional awards are presented in years where SCB Groups host regional congresses.

In 2019, SCB will present Distinguished Service Awards at ICCB 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (21-25 July 2019). Regional awards will be presented in 2020 at SCB Group congresses. 

The Society also presents Graduate Student Research Fellowship Awards annually.
