I&M Society Awards

Note: In addition to the Nominator’s letter, at least one, but no more than three support letters may be submitted.

Description of Award: To recognize an outstanding young I&M member who has distinguished himself/herself through achievement(s), which may be technical (within the I&M field of interest), may be exemplary service to the I&M Society, or may be a combination of both. What distinguishes this award from other I&M achievement-based awards is that by its title, this award’s focus is on a person, not an achievement, and the Society implicitly recognizes the person who was responsible for the success of the cited achievement(s) during his/her early career.
