The Alfred Sherwood Romer Prize recognizes an outstanding scientific contribution in vertebrate paleontology by a predoctoral student. Selection for participation in the Romer Prize Session at the SVP Annual Meeting is based on the scientific value and quality of an abstract summarizing an original research project, and the Romer Prize is awarded on the basis of the scientific value and quality of the oral presentation of that research during the Romer Prize session at the SVP Annual Meeting. The Romer Prize award for 2012 is $750.

Selected and presented on site at the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology's Annual Meeting, the Edwin H. and Margaret M. Colbert Prize recognizes an outstanding poster presentation by a student. The prize was named in honor of the Colberts' contributions to vertebrate paleontology. The winner of the 2012 Colbert Prize will be presented with a check for $600 and a poster ribbon.
