Funding: 
Funded by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.
Nomination Deadline: 
August 1, 2020
Presentation: 
Awarded annually at the discretion of the I&M Society Awards Committee at the following year’s I2MTC awards ceremony.
Eligibility: 
Nominee must be no more than 38 years of age (must not have reached the 39th birthday). Must be a member of IEEE and the Instrumentation and Measurement Society at the time of nomination and presentation. Nominator must certify the eligibility of the nominee at the time of nomination. Voting members of the Society Standing Awards Committee are not eligible. Nominees must exhibit actions that reflect positively on and enhance the reputation of the I&M Society. Eligibility and Selection process shall comply with procedures and regulation established in IEEE and Society/Council governing documents, particularly with IEEE Policy 4.4. on Awards Limitations (https://www.ieee.org/content/dam/ieee-org/ieee/web/org/ieee-policies.pdf). Previous award winners are not eligible.
Basis for Judgment: 
Recognizes an outstanding young I&M member who has distinguished him/herself through achievements, which are technical, of exemplary service to the I&M Society, or a combination of both, early in their career. The nomination must clearly indicate the achievements that define the excellence of the candidate and must reference/provide relevant documentation that is in/or not in/ the public domain. At least 1, but no more than 3 endorsements must be provided by individuals with close knowledge of a candidate’s activities that led to the achievements cited.

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.
