Each year the Cushman Foundation for Foraminiferal Research presents the Joseph A. Cushman Awards, the William V. Sliter Awards, and the Loeblich and Tappan Awards to M.Sc. and Ph.D. students to partially support research projects dealing with foraminifera or allied groups. We congratulate the 2008 Student Research Award Winners.
