David M. Hopkins Beringia Award

David M. Hopkins Beringia Award plaque

The first name that comes to mind when one thinks and speaks about the contributions to the Beringia region is the name of Dr. David M. Hopkins, an outstanding American scholar whose tireless work, passion, and dedication to Beringian studies helped to advance the state of knowledge of the region and bring together scientists from different countries. The Shared Beringia Heritage Program (SBHP) chose to honor Dr. Hopkins with his permission by establishing The David M. Hopkins Beringia Award in 2001, shortly before Dr. Hopkins passed away.

The criteria that are considered in selecting a recipient for this award are those that exemplify the life and career of Dr. Hopkins. The criteria are:

  • Contributions to the people, history, resources and cultures of the Beringia region
  • Outstanding scientific inquiry, whether academic or self-taught
  • Interdisciplinary vision - someone who involves multiple disciplines to study the same matter or subject and thus adds to the progressive growth of knowledge
  • Passing on personal knowledge and inspiration to others through mentoring
  • An open international perspective - maintaining bridges of information between countries
  • Fostering conservation of the natural and cultural resources of the region - bridging of generations through safeguarding those resources for the future
