NSF invites nominations for two awards

The National Science Board (of the National Science Foundation) recently announced a call for nominations for the 2007 Public Service Award and the Vannevar Bush Award.

You are invited to share this call for nominations with your colleagues and to consider nominating individuals or groups for these two awards.

The NSB Public Service Award recognizes people and organizations that have increased public understanding of science or engineering. The Vannevar Bush Award recognizes an individual who, through public service activities in science and technology, has made an outstanding “contribution toward the welfare of mankind and the nation.”
