The Fuel Cycle and Waste Management Significant Contribution Award recognizes individuals or teams for a successful accomplishment that significantly advanced the scientific, engineering, societal, or regulatory aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle and/or the nuclear waste management.
The award may be given to an individual or collectively to a team for success on a single project, activity, contribution, or sustained initiative related to the nuclear fuel cycle and/or nuclear waste management. Nominees need to be ANS members at the time of nomination. It is normally presented to a member of the FCWMD, however, any ANS member is eligible. Not awarded posthumously.
The award consists of a plaque given at the ANS Annual Meeting.
This award was established by the Fuel Cycle and Waste Management Division (FCWMD) as a Division-Administered award in 2014.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to the FCWMD chair.
For more information, please visit the Fuel Cycle and Waste Management Division website.
Worthy candidates will be selected by a subcommittee headed by the FCWMD chair, and composed of the vice-chair, treasury/secretary, and ex-officio chair.
The final decisions on candidates will be decided by vote of the FCWMD executive committee.
