American Society For Nutrition



Excellence in Nutrition Research and Practice

Full Invitation for Nominations for 2013

The American Society for Nutrition annually recognizes individuals for their superior achievement in nutrition research and public service.

  • Nominations may be made by anyone, including members of the respective nominating committees and nonmembers of the Society.  
  • Effective as of September 15, 2012, nominations for each award will be retained for 1 year. (Note: All nominations that were submitted in the 2011 and 2012 Call for Nominations will still be considered in the 2013 awards selection. All nominations submitted in the 2013 Call for Nominations and all future years will only be retained for one year). 
  • Candidates may be renominated. Unsuccessful nominations will need to be updated and resubmitted to be reconsidered in the next year's awards selection. 
  • Candidates for awards need not be members of the Society but outlining service to the Society is helpful when applicable. 
  • An individual who has received one ASN award is not eligible to receive another award unless it is for accomplishments not covered by the first award.
  • Award juries, composed of ASN members, are appointed each year by the president. Their names are kept confidential. The juries select the award winners for that year. If a jury believes that no nominated candidate merits an award, no award will be given that year.
  • An award is usually given to one person, but a jury may recommend that the award be given to two or more individuals who collaborated in recent research.
  • A brief curriculum vitae for each nominee, including a list of the nominee's publications in refereed journals, is required.  
  • All material for a nomination must be submitted electronically. Incomplete nominations will not be considered.
