Call for National Medal of Science Nominations

Arlington, VA | Posted on November 27th, 2007

The National Science Foundation (NSF) will accept applications for the National Medal of Science until Dec. 7, 2007. Established by Congress in 1959, the National Medal of Science is the Nation's highest honor for American scientists and engineers presented annually by the President of the United States.

The National Medal of Science is presented to individuals deserving of special recognition by reason of their outstanding contributions to knowledge in the biological, engineering, mathematical, physical or social and behavioral sciences. The selection process is managed by the NSF.

Since its establishment, the Medal has been awarded to 441 distinguished scientists and engineers whose careers spanned decades of research and development. The laureates have made major impacts in fields of science and engineering through career-long, ground-breaking achievements in the disciplines for which the awards are given. The Medal also recognizes contributions to innovation, industry or education.

Eligible candidates must be living U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have applied for citizenship within the past 12 months. NSF encourages diverse, high quality nominations for the 2008 Medals. More detailed eligibility criteria and the nomination guidelines are available at http://www.nsf.gov/od/nms/medal.jsp .

Information on past recipients is also available at http://www.nsf.gov/od/nms/recipients.cfm .
