National Award Nomination Guidelines

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.
 

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 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.
Award Presentation
