The requirements for most award nomination packages are: a possible citation under 25 words; completion of nomination letter limited to three pages; a two page cv; a three page bibliography; three letters of support (each up to 3 pages long). These letters should supplement the information in the sponsor’s original nomination of this individual. Please review specific instructions for each award nomination.
On the nominations page, you must enter your email address and password, then click submit. At this point, click on the award title for which you will be nominating someone and click submit. At this screen you need to fill in your title and affiliation and click submit. On the following screen, fill in the nominee’s first and last name, last name only, affiliation, (birth date and date highest degree received for specific awards), and member number if known. The next screen allows you to edit along with selecting the items from the “check list” box on the left.
The award citation should be under 25 words. The citation should reflect the nominee’s accomplishments, contributions to his or her field and impact on the world or the individual’s particular communities.
