SAWE Awards

Nominations for Honorary Fellow, Fellow, Richard Boynton Lifetime Achievement Award, and Ed Payne Award (for Outstanding Young Engineer) are due March 1st, 2017. Chapter Directors are responsible to canvas their chapter membership for members worthy of these awards and to submit candidates to the International Awards Committee. These prestigious awards designate an elite group of contributors to the SAWE and the field of mass properties engineering. Please review the information below and the attached nomination forms as guidance. You may also refer to the SAWE Bylaws and Operations Manual. 

 

HONORARY FELLOW

Honorary Fellows shall be persons who have achieved eminence in mass properties engineering, or who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of the Society.  Honorary Fellows are typically elevated from the rank of Fellow, although that is not a requirement to be a Fellow for this award.

FELLOW

Fellows shall be persons who have achieved distinction in mass properties engineering, or who have materially contributed to the advancement of the Society.

RICHARD BOYNTON LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

The Richard Boynton Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to a member of SAWE that has demonstrated extraordinarily strong and sustained support of the SAWE over a significant number of years.

ED PAYNE AWARD

The Ed Payne Award is given to a young engineer (age less than 35 at the time of nomination) who has contributed significantly to SAWE or the mass properties engineering profession.

Any SAWE member may make an award nomination. Nominations should sufficiently describe the candidate’s background and contributions, and elaborate on details of award qualifications. Please give careful consideration in your nominations. Note that it is not a requirement that the nominee be an SAWE member for Honorary Fellow, Fellow, and Ed Payne awards.

Nomination forms / assistance are available from the committee chairman Jeffrey.a.cerro@nasa.gov.
