MSA Award for young and outstanding scientists

Dear colleagues and friends,

as a member of the MSA Medal Committee, I strongly encourage you to send me the names of potential new nominees and possible sponsors for the Mineralogical Society of America Award, deadline April 1st. The MSA Award is intended to recognize outstanding published contributions to the science of mineralogy by relatively young individuals or individuals near the beginning of their professional careers. The work must have been accomplished either [1] before the age of 35 or [2] within 7 years of the awarding of the terminal degree. If the former, the candidate must be 36 less on January 1 of the year the award is decided. If the latter, the award must be decided prior to December 31 of the seventh year past the terminal degree. These time limits for the award can be extended for up to two years based on circumstances which have interrupted the nominee's career (i.e., serious illness, child birth, care giver, etc.). Mineralogy is broadly defined and the candidate need not qualify as a mineralogist. Rather, her/his published record should be related to the mineralogical sciences and should make some outstanding contribution to them. Nationality or place of employment shall not be considered; however, current members of MSA Council are not eligible to be considered for the award. The recipient of the MSA Award receives a certificate and is made a Life Fellow of the Society.
