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.

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.
