SFS Fellows accepting nominations until Nov. 15th

Monday, October 1, 2018


  • Starting in 2019, career award nominations will now be accepted in the fall. Awardees have already been selected for this round.
  • EXCEPTION: SFS Fellows are currently accepting nominations until Nov. 15, 2018. Nominations can be made here.

Dear members:

Please add to your calendar now and forever more: fall is now the time to nominate outstanding members of our society for their contributions to freshwater science! These awards include the Award of Excellence (AOE), the Distinguished Service Award, the Environmental Stewardship Award, SFS Fellows, and the Hynes Award for new investigators.  The Board of Directors recently approved changing solicitation from spring to fall to follow our meeting cycle.

The 2019 Award winners have already been decided – but you will need to wait until January to hear more about these outstanding members and their contributions!  The AOE and Hynes Award winners will additionally be addressing the Society at our 2019 meeting in Salt Lake City.

But wait! The SFS Fellows are soliciting nominations for the selection of two new SFS Fellows in our new awards cycle.  Nominations for these are due November 15, with decisions made in mid December. Dr. Steve Hamilton is currently the point of contact for the SFS Fellows nominations (  The nomination form can be found here.

I hope you are having a wonderful and successful fall season – and that you are motivated to nominate SFS members for their inspiring work for these awards.  You can do this now and in the future – at this time of year!

Happy fall!

Amy Rosemond

President-Elect, Chair, SFS Awards committee
