The NPSS gives four Society level awards each year—awards for which all NPSS members are eligible. The awards are the Merit Award, which is for scientific and technical achievement; the Early Achievement Award, which is for scientific and technical achievement within the first decade of the career; the Richard F. Shea Award, which is for service to the NPSS, and the Graduate Scholarship Award. Please consider nominating a mentor, a colleague, or a student for one of these prestigious awards – surely you know somebody who deserves one! Nominations for all of these are due on January 31.
More information on these and other relevant Awards, including submission information, is available at http://ewh.ieee.org/soc/nps/awards.htm.
