The MRS Awards Program strives to acknowledge outstanding contributors to the progress of materials research and to recognize their exciting and profound accomplishments. We seek to honor those whose work has already had a major impact in the field, those who have defined the frontiers of the field, those who are outstanding exponents of their science and those early-career researchers whose work already leads to great expectations for future leadership.
Not only do we honor the award recipients, we also believe that by highlighting these diverse leaders in our field and their creative work, we will enrich the awareness of the progress and breadth of materials research, both within the materials community and the wider community at large.
"Take a look around you and ask yourself, “Do I have a colleague that is deserving of recognition for their achievements?” If so, consider nominating them for one of many MRS Awards that span career stages and contributions. And if you’ve never nominated a deserving colleague, now is an excellent time to start and learn about the process while encouraging someone in our diverse community."
—Suveen Mathaudhu, MRS Awards Committee Chair, Colorado School of Mines.
