IAH USNC International Service Award
The IAH USNC International Service Award recognizes the efforts of hydrogeologists based in the United States who have shown an outstanding commitment to assisting the international community with groundwater-related needs. The award is presented to one individual each year who has performed exceptional work in assisting those outside of the US (particularly in developing countries) with developing, managing, or protecting groundwater resources for public and/or ecosystem benefit. These efforts may be scientific, educational, humanitarian, engineering-focused, or technological in nature.
Candidates must be nominated by at least one person other than themselves who is a member of either IAH or GSA. Nominations need to include the nominator’s name and contact information, the nominee’s name and contact information, and a written justification for why the nominee should receive the award, not to exceed 500 words.
