Service Award (A)

The Service Award is to honour individuals who, through outstanding or exceptional work, have promoted, facilitated or encouraged the sciences of astronomy or geophysics and developed their role nationally or internationally but whose achievement does not fall within the criteria of the Society's other awards.

The award will be a suitable gift, chosen after consultation with the recipient (normally conducted by the Office, Events & Building Manager).

  • The above nomination form
  • A full CV
  • A short list of key refereed publications (preferably with citation data. Ideally, this publication list should be extracted from the Astrophysics Data System)
  • Your nomination (minimum length 120 words, maximum length 1000 words). This should address how the nominee fulfils the criteria of the Award, and also include the nominee's present career stage, the nominee's present post, and other awards and honours. Successful nominations argue a strong case for why the nominee deserves the award over and above one of their peers working in the same area. It is helpful if the nomination is phrased in such a way that extracts from it can be used in the formal recommendation of the Committee.

Additional supporting material may be requested if required.
