:: The Mineralogical Society of America Award
The Mineralogical Society of America Award is intended to recognize outstanding published contributions to the science of mineralogy by relatively young individuals or individuals near the beginning of their professional careers. The work must have been accomplished either 1 before the age of 35 or 2 within 7 years of the awarding of the terminal degree. If the former, the candidate must be less than 37 on January 1 of the year the award is decided. If the latter, the award must be decided prior to December 31 of the seventh year past the terminal degree. Mineralogy is broadly defined and the candidate need not qualify as a mineralogist. Rather, her/his published record should be related to the mineralogical sciences and should make some outstanding contribution to them.
The recipient of the MSA Award receives a certificate and is made a Life Fellow of the Society.
