    For this year’s awards, nominations will be accepted until January 31, 2019. Please see the award categories and instructions for nomination submission at the Chapter's website:

    Nominations for awards should be submitted by a school, department, or a laboratory. Some categories have limited number of nominations that can be submitted by each unit. For details, see

    I would like to bring to your attention that, in addition to Best Ph.D. and M.S. Thesis Awards, we also offer up to two (2) Best Undergraduate Research Awards for outstanding undergraduate research as evidenced by a thesis, written report, or published paper(s). (An undergraduate student can be nominated for the Undergraduate Award up to one year after graduation.)
