The Landis Young Member Engineering Achievement Award recognizes young individual members (early career professionals or students) for outstanding achievement in which engineering knowledge has been effectively applied to yield an engineering concept, design, safety improvement, method of analysis or product utilized in nuclear power research and development or commercial application. The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding engineering contributions by young members of the Society and encourage engineering excellence among the young membership. Hence, the award is restricted to members of the Society who are under 40 years of age at the time of nomination. The award emphasizes the vital part played by young members in the future of nuclear science and technology and the American Nuclear Society.
The award may be presented to one or more individuals at the Annual Meeting of the Society. It consists of a plaque, $2,000 monetary award, and compensation for travel expenses incurred in attending the award presentation.
The Young Member Engineering Achievement Award was established in 1980 and was originally funded by the ANS Organization Members. In 2005, the award was renamed after John W. Landis, ANS Fellow, Past President, and Founding Member in response to a $20,000 contribution to the fund in his honor. An additional $25,000 was contributed by the Landis Trust posthumously in 2013.
