The Society presents several awards, medals, and prizes as part of its remit to support and encourage scientists working in the fields of astronomy and geophysics. Some are aimed at young scientists, while others recognise many years of dedicated service to our sciences.
Nominations are invited for RAS Medals and Prizes to be awarded in January 2022. The deadline for nominations is 31 July 2021. A separate call will go out later for the Education and Outreach Awards. These have a deadline of Friday, 24 September 2021.
Anyone may submit a nomination for an award, it is not necessary to be a Fellow of the RAS. All nominations are made in strict confidence; nominees should not be informed of submissions in order to avoid unnecessary disappointment. This does not apply to the Education and Outreach Medals. Please visit 'Awards, Medals, and Prizes' for more information and links to all RAS awards.
