Prize

$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.

Funding

Funded by the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society

Presentation

At a convenient IEEE AESS conference

Eligibility

The candidate does not have to be an IEEE/AESS member, but given everything else being equal, a member will be given preferential consideration. The space achievement has to be deemed to have made a particularly noteworthy contribution in the AESS Field of Interest.
