All members are encouraged to review the nomination requirements for these awards and consider nominating a qualified colleague. Many ANS awards are open to non–ANS members, and nominating colleagues who are not members is one way to foster new ANS relationships.

More information is available on each of the awards listed above, including past award recipients and nominations forms. There you will also find information about awards administered by ANS professional divisions. If you have questions about a specific award, please contact Hash Hashemian, chair of the Honors and Awards Committee at

The deadline for submission of nominations for Winter Meeting awards is August 1. Because of the large number of nominations typically submitted, late nominations are not accepted.
