TMS award recipents include some of the most accomplished and promising materials scientists and engineers in the world. By recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of these members of the international minerals, metals, and materials community, TMS hopes to both reward these deserving individuals and to encourage their colleagues to strive toward the same—and perhaps an even greater—level of distinction.
You can contribute to this important effort by nominating a deserving colleague or applying for one of TMS’s many awards. Browse the buttons on the left to view awards that honor materials scientists and engineers at all levels of their careers or use the drop-down menu below to navigate directly to a specific award.
Award committee rosters are confidential due to the sensitive nature of the committee’s work.
HOW TO SUBMIT AN AWARD NOMINATION
Nomination and application information for the awards are included under the “Submissions” tab of each award listing.
A majority of awards that require a candidate to be nominated will use the Nomination Form (PDF).
This form includes information on how to nominate candidates for most society- and division-level awards.
Self nominations will not be considered.
The intention of these documents is to assist nominators in effectively communicating the qualities of their nominee to the award committee.
HOW TO SUBMIT A NEW AWARD PROPOSAL
TMS has established and operated programs which honor outstanding achievements in the worldwide minerals, metals, and materials community.
