Nominations for 2024 are OPEN.
The 2024 nomination cycle will end on October 31, 2024. Nominations for 2024 are open year round until the deadline.
Generally, AAS Awards will be bestowed for meritorious accomplishments during the previous year. However, meritorious accomplishments prior to then, not previously honored by AAS award recognition, are equally acceptable and will receive full consideration. Likewise, accomplishments of an individual over a sustained period of time will be sufficient to merit the granting of any relevant AAS award. As a rule, any nominee who received an AAS award within the preceding 3 years will not be considered for additional awards.
Please note: The recipients of the Eugene M. Emme Astronautical Literature Awards and Ordway Award for Sustained Excellence in Spaceflight History are selected by the AAS History Committee. For the Emme Awards, deadline for receipt of nominations for books published the previous year is April 30, with review copies due by May 30. The Dirk Brouwer Award and Emerging Astrodynamicist Award are selected by the Space Flight Mechanics Committee and the International Cooperation Award is selected by the International Programs Committee.
