Ernest Hartmann Award for Student Research

Ernest Hartmann Award for Student Research
(formerly known as Student Awards)

The initial idea for a student research award was put forward at the IASD Board meeting prior to the 2004 Copenhagen conference by the late Dr. Ernest Hartmann.  Dr. Hartmann served thereafter as a regular member of the Student Awards Committee.  In recognition of his contributions to this effort, the Committee has decided, and the Executive Board of IASD has agreed, to rename the award in his memory.  It will henceforth be known as the Ernest Hartmann Award for Student Research.

The IASD Student Research Awards are given to students (undergraduate and graduate) in two areas: best original scientific research on dreams and dreaming and for best submission of original historical, literary, artistic, or theoretical research on dreams.

Good luck to all participants!

We are pleased to announce that the anonymous donor who generously provided funding for the Student Research Award last year has graciously agreed to provide matching funds for the 2020 competition! The IASD Board of Trustees will provide the balance of funds.

As in previous years, there will be two $500 awards. The first is for the best student submission of original scientific research on dreams and dreaming. The second is for the best submission of original historical, literary, artistic, or theoretical research. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to submit papers.

All participants must submit their presentations in electronic form, preferably through email to office@asdreams.org or if necessary by mailing the files, copied to a CD or a DVD, to the IASD office by March 1, 2020
