Father James B. Macelwane Annual Award in Meteorology
Goes By: AMS Macelwane Award
Be sure to consult the Fellowship Website for complete eligibility and competition requirements.
About this Fellowship
This is a student paper contest that provides travel support and stipend for undergraduate students interested in the atmospheric sciences.
Deadlines are typically in June, but be sure to check the competition website for the current cycle’s deadline.
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. Papers are evaluated during the summer, and award winners are announced the following fall.
The Society encourages applications from women, minorities, and disabled students, traditionally underrepresented in the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences.
The recipient will be awarded one-year stipend of $1,000 and partial travel support to the AMS Annual Meeting.
