The Jerome J. Paulin Memorial Lectureship Fund: Established in 1994 by SEMS as a tribute to the memory of one of the Society’s most beloved and distinguished members, Dr. Jerome J. Paulin, the fund enables eminent scholars from SEMS to visit and deliver lectures on current topics in microscopy to regional institutions.

The Roth-Michaels Award: Named after Drs. Ivan Roth and Gene Michaels, this award will be geared toward science education at the secondary school level. Ideally once it is initiated, this award should work synergistically with the Ruska award to inspire young microscopists in our region.
