AMS Awards

The Chapter normally makes three awards in each Spring semester — two student prizes and one faculty prize.

Any member or any student eligible to be a member of the Chapter may make nominations for any of the three awards. Faculty may also make nominations for the two student awards. Nomination is confidential and self-nomination is permitted. Students may receive each award only once, and faculty may receive the award once every three years. If there is no nominee for a particular award, no award is not made that year.

Nominees for student awards must be members of the Chapter. Student nominees may submit a summary of the relevant activity (research or leadership) which will be provided to the membership before voting. If no such summary is submitted, the nominator may submit such a summary (this may be submitted at the time of nomination). If neither is submitted, the officers of the Chapter will prepare such a summary. For the faculty award, the nominator should submit such a summary. If this is not submitted, the officers will prepare one.

To nominate a student or faculty member at any time, please contact one of the officers (see home page).

Each award is determined by a majority vote among members of the Chapter. Voting is confidential.
