AAS Prize Letter of Support Form

Only AAS members are eligible to submit AAS prize nominations, but anyone may submit a letter of support.

If you've been asked to submit a letter of support to accompany a nomination for one of the AAS prizes and wish to have your letter go directly to the AAS Secretary without it being seen by the nominator and/or the candidate, you may upload it using this form.

Please read the full description of the relevant prize or award on our AAS prizes and awards page.

The annual deadline for prize nominations and supporting materials is 30 June.

Name of prize nominee
*For the Cannon Award and the Pierce and Warner Prizes, we don't want the prize-committee members to know which candidates were nominated by others and which candidates nominated themselves. Accordingly, all three letters of support for these prizes must say something like "I'm writing to support the nomination of [candidate's name]" rather than "I'm writing to nominate [candidate's name]." Any letter in support of the Cannon Award or Pierce or Warner Prize that suggests that the author is directly "nominating" the candidate rather than "supporting the nomination of" the candidate will be returned for a rewrite.
