AAS Honors, Prizes, Awards, and Grants

To foster and recognize excellence in astronomy, the AAS presents honors, awards, and prizes for outstanding contributions to astronomical research, instrumentation, writing, and service. To support our members and their science, the Society also provides grants for research, travel, education and professional development, and dependent and child care.

This website accepts nominations for honors, prizes, and awards; accepts grant proposals and applications; and provides tools for selection committees to use in evaluating nominations for honors, prizes, and awards.

Please note that AAS members must have paid their dues through the current year in order to submit a nomination.
