About the Prize (top)
In 1986, Cornell University, Indiana University, and Stanford University established a joint endowment to fund a prize in honor of David Starr Jordan, a scientist, educator and institution builder of enormous influence on higher education in the United States who had important ties to each of these universities. The prize is international in scope and presented approximately every three years to a young scientist who is making novel innovative contributions likely to redirect the principal foci of their fields in one or more areas of Jordan’s interest: evolution, ecology, population and organismal biology.
