The award is given to a current or very recent graduate student who presents an outstanding talk based on their graduate work at the annual meeting. This year's Evolution 2022 was a joint meeting of the American Society of Naturalists, the Society for the Study of Evolution, and the Society of Systematic Biologists in Cleveland, OH.

Mittan will receive $1,000 and a one-year membership to the Society for the Study of Evolution, which includes one year of access to the journal Evolution.

She is mentored by Mariah Meek, Nick Haddad, and Sarah Fitzpatrick in the Department of Integrative Biology in the College of Natural Science and at Kellogg Biological Station.
