AWG Outstanding Educator Award

published Feb 6, 2015 2:25pm

The Association of Women Geoscientists established the Outstanding Educator Award in 1988 to honor well-established college or university teachers who have played a significant role in the education and support of women geoscientists both within and outside the classroom. Examples of support include encouraging women to enter and continue in a geoscience career, providing opportunities for field and laboratory experience, and serving as a positive role model. In addition, awardees are selected on the basis of their contributions as professionals, involvement with professional societies or groups, and/or participation in science education programs in their community.

The deadline for nominations is April 1. Nominations must include a current vitae and at least six letters of recommendation from professional colleagues, former students, and current students. Compile all documents in one pdf file and email your nomination as an attachment to Chair of the AWG Outstanding Educator Award selection committee Dr. Lauren Neitzke Adamo, at
