Nominations for awards to be presented in June 2016 will open in November 2015 and close on January 15, 2016.
Beginning this year, nominators will be responsible for collecting all supporting letters and submitting them as part of the award nomination. For online submissions, nominators will upload supporting letters to the nomination form. For hardcopy submissions, nominators will include supporting letters as part of the nomination packet.
Nominations must be made by ASEE members for the major awards that are offered by ASEE. However, current members of the ASEE Awards Policy Committee and the award selection committees are excluded as nominators and/or as candidates for any award under their purview. Any exceptions are stated under the applicable award.
Membership in ASEE is not an eligibility requirement for the awards that are offered. Any exceptions are noted under specific awards, such as the Distinguished Service Citation.
In general, all award nominations must include a nomination cover page, citation, nomination rationale statement, and curriculum vitae as well as evidence of accomplishments and supporting letters of recommendation. However, some awards have specific nomination requirements. Please refer to the award descriptions at http://www.asee.org/member-resources/awards/full-list-of-awards for any special instructions.
Nominations should not include voluminous materials, such as exhibits, samples or numerous recommendations of former students. Clear, concise statements of achievements are of more value. Information from public sources such as Who's Who is helpful, but should be supplemented by information as to specific contributions.

Afterward, all nominators are notified by ASEE headquarters regarding the status of their award nominations. The above process is usually completed by mid April.
