The American Ornithological Society’s (AOS) 2022 awards cycle is now open! Each year through our awards program, the AOS celebrates the notable achievements of ornithologists who are engaged in critical and innovative avian research and conservation science, research publication, and service to the Society. We rely on YOU, our members, to nominate your colleagues, mentees, and mentors for these prestigious awards.
Details and eligibility criteria for our 2022 awards are presented on our website for the Senior Professional Awards, Early Professional Awards, Service Awards, and Publication Awards. Award winners are announced annually in the spring and will be presented at AOS’s 2022 Annual Meeting, which will be hosted in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from 27 June–2 July 2022. Nominations are due by 15 January 2022.
