The W. Storrs Cole Memorial Research Award was established to support research in invertebrate micropaleontology. It will be given each year to a GSA Member or Fellow between 30 and 65 years of age who has published one or more significant papers on micropaleontology. Funds cannot be used for work already accomplished, but recipients of a previous award may reapply if additional support is needed to complete their work. W. Storrs Cole passed away on June 14, 1989, at the age of 86. Dr. Cole had been a Fellow of GSA for 58 years and was one of the Society's leading benefactors. The first presentation of this award was in 1991.
