To recognize candidates that have provided outstanding contributions to space engineering in the AESS Fields of Interest; i.e. “the organization, systems engineering, design, development, integration, and operation of complex systems for space, air, ocean, or ground environments.”
$2,000 USD honorarium (shared equally between multiple winners) and a plaque for each winner.
If there is more than one winner, each will receive a plaque and the honorarium will be evenly divided. In the case of financial hardship, a total of up to $1,500 in travel expenses per year can be authorized by the AESS President for the recipient to attend the selected conference’s award ceremony.
