Washington Academy of Sciences

Awards for Scientific Achievement

In order to recognize scientific work of merit and distinction, the Washington Academy of Sciences gives awards annually to scientists who work in the greater Washington D.C. area .

The history of the Awards program, begun in 1940, is literally a catalog of over 60 years of scientific achievement. While we have honored these scientists over the decades, we equally have been honored by our association with them.

The following table shows the Awards presented in 2010 for work done through 2009.

To nominate someone for an award please print and complete the Award Nomination form.
