Michigan Botanical Club Awards

Distinguished Service Award

Each year the club presents one or two awards to members that have provided a significant service to the club.

Honorary Life Membership Award

Life memberships are awarded to members that have provided an outstanding effort for the club.

Isobel Dickinson Memorial Award

This award is sponsored by the Michigan Botanical Club in memory of long time RCC member Isobel Dickinson.  It will be awarded for the best student-authored paper published in a given volume of The Michigan Botanist.

Lifetime Achievement Award

The Lifetime Achievement Award was authorized by the MBC Board of Directors in October 1997 to be awarded only on very special occasions.

Joan Robb Student Foray Award

Each Chapter of MBC sponsors students to the annual MBC Foray.  The sponsoring chapter pays the student's registration fee and room and board.  The Chapter will also assist in finding the student a ride to the foray with other club members.

These awards are aimed at college level students, although other qualified students have been sponsored. Membership in the Club is not required.
