Father James B. Macelwane Award in Meteorology

The purpose of the Father James B. Macelwane Annual Awards in Meteorology is to stimulate interest in meteorology among college students through the submission of original student papers concerned with an aspect of the atmospheric sciences. The student must be enrolled as an undergraduate at the time the paper is written, and no more than two students from any one institution may enter in any one contest.

SOARS Program

A successful candidate should: * have completed his/her sophomore year by June of the first year of participation; * have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; * be a member of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in the atmospheric and related sciences; * have a major in an atmospheric science or a related field such as biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental science, mathematics, meterology, oceanography, physics, or social sciences; * plan to pursue a career in atmospheric or a related science; * be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Father James B. Macelwane Annual Award in Meteorology

The Father James B. Macelwane Annual Award was established by the American Meteorological Society to honor the late Rev. James B. Macelwane, S.J., a world renowned authority of seismology, who was a geophysicist and Dean of the Institute of Technology, Saint Louis University, until his death in 1956. The recipient of the Father James B. Macelwane award will receive a stipend of $1000 supported by member donations to the AMS Giving Program. The purpose of this award is to stimulate interest in meteorology among college students through the submission of original student papers concerned with some phase of the atmospheric sciences. The student must be enrolled as an undergraduate at the time the paper is written, and no more than two students from any one institution may enter papers in any one contest. Submission of Papers: To consider papers for the Macelwane Award, the AMS Committee of Judges must receive the following: an original copy of the paper in addition to 3 copies (total of 4); a letter of application from the author, including mailing address and email, stating the title of the paper and the name of the university at which the paper was written; a letter from the department head or other faculty member of the major department, confirming that the author was an undergraduate student at the time the paper was written, and indicating the elements of the paper that represent original contributions by the student; an abstract of no more than 250 words of the authors paper Award includes: $1000 stipend Partial travel support to the AMS Annual Meeting.

AMS Graduate Fellowship in the History of Science

The American Meteorological Society is pleased to invite applications for a graduate fellowship in the history of science, to be awarded to a student wishing to complete a dissertation on the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences. The award carries a $15000 stipend and will support one year of dissertation research. Fellowships cannot be deferred and must be used for the year awarded, but can be used to support research at a location away from the student's institution provided the plan is approved by the student's thesis advisor. The goal of the graduate fellowship is to generate a dissertation topic in the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences, and to foster close working relations between historians and scientists. An effort will be made to place the student into a mentoring relationship with an AMS member at an appropriate institution.
