These awards have been made available by local sponsors of the 2009 US-IALE conference, including the U.S. Geological Survey, Cooperative Research Units Program, and the College of Natural Resources, the Ecology Center, both of Utah State University. All of these organizations are in one form or another involved in the training and education of students for future conservation positions, many of which necessarily involve understanding landscape-level processes.
