Call for Nominations
Call for Nominations for 2021 Prize, Awards, APS DPP Fellowship, and Executive Committee Elections
Deadline: Thursday, April 1, 2021
A prize or award presented by the American Physical Society (APS) is one of the highest honors a physicist can receive. The Division of Plasma Physics (DPP) annually solicits nominations for an APS prize and several awards.
The nominator does not have to be an APS member. Anyone except a member of the Nominating Committee may submit one nomination or seconding letter for each prize or award in any given year. Self-nominations are not accepted. Specific eligibility criteria are listed on each award page. Nominators who have an active carry-over nomination will receive a reminder email to log in to the nomination system to review and update their nomination as needed. If a nomination is expired, the nominator may submit a new nomination.
Go to the APS Honors page for Prize and Awards and Fellowship Nomination Guidelines.
Go to the APS DPP Prize and Awards Committees page for a list of the Appointed Committee members.
This year nominations are being accepted for the following five committees:
- James Clerk Maxwell Prize for Plasma Physics
- John Dawson Award for Excellence in Plasma Physics Research
- Marshall N. Rosenbluth Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award
Note: Nominations for the Rosenbluth Thesis Award will require a copy of the dissertation or the URL address of the dissertation.
- Thomas H. Stix Award for Outstanding Early Career Contributions to Plasma Physics Research
