How to Submit a Nomination

If you would like to nominate a colleague for one of these awards, please submit a nomination package containing the following materials to [email protected]:

  1. A letter containing an evaluation and appraisal of the nominee's accomplishments related to the award.
    (For the Young Investigator Award only, this letter must include an evaluation of the originality of the candidate’s contributions. The nominee must have been the principal investigator or author of research, rather than one of many collaborators.)

  2. Three to five letters of support detailing the nominee’s accomplishments related to the award.

  3. The nominee's curriculum vitae.

  4. A list of the nominee's publications and patents if applicable (this information may be included in the curriculum vitae).

Incomplete nomination packages will not be considered.

More Information

Who can submit a nomination?

Any AACC member or group of members, such as a local section, division, or committee, may submit award nominations. AACC also considers nominations from nonmember individuals and organizations.

Can I nominate someone who has already received an AACC award?

Previous AACC award recipients may be nominated for an additional award, if the candidate has made significant contributions in a different area that warrant such consideration.

Who is not eligible for an AACC award?

Members of the Awards Committee are not eligible for an AACC Award during their tenure on the committee.

However, AACC officers are eligible to receive AACC Awards during their term of office.

When does AACC select award recipients?

The AACC Awards Committee reviews all nominations and selects award recipients in March of each year. Those who nominated individuals who were not selected will be notified shortly thereafter; however, individuals who wrote letters of support will not be notified.
