The Barbara A. Horwitz and John M. Horowitz Undergraduate Research Awards are presented annually to undergraduate students who are presenting their research at the APS annual meeting at Experimental Biology (EB). There are two types of Horwitz/Horowitz Undergraduate Research Awards presented annually. However, the second type which is the Excellence in Undergraduate Research Awards will not be given in 2021. The Outstanding Undergraduate Abstract Awards will be available; a $100 honorarium will be given, a one-year complimentary APS membership at the undergraduate level and an award certificate.
