Purpose of the Award
To recognize and encourage publication of significant research results in science and in technology by JPL employees throughout their professional careers.
Nature of the Award
The award consists of a certificate of recognition and a Level A Bonus Award of $5000 (subject to withholdings). Up to two (2) awards will be given each year. In return, each recipient will be asked to give a public lecture to the JPL community related to the work for which she/he is being recognized. The lectures will be spread through the year.
A paper has to satisfy both of the “required” criteria and a nomination may be strengthened if the “desired” criterion is also met.
