AGU’s Honors Program aligns with AGU’s mission, vision, core values and strategic plan. The Sulzman Award for Excellence in Education and Mentoring is given annually to one mid-career female scientist (no more than 15 years post-degree) for significant contributions as a role model and mentor for the next generation of biogeoscientists.
The committee is charged with selecting the recipient(s) of the Biogeosciences Sulzman Award. Committee members will abide by the AGU Conflict of Interest policy, program policies, procedures and guidelines set by the Union. In partnership with the Honors and Recognition Committee and staff, the committee works to ensure that the program is superior in all respects, recognizes all constituents, and fosters a global network of individuals in the Earth and space sciences who epitomize excellence and cooperation in research, education and outreach. The members of the Biogeosciences Sulzman Award Committee will promote excellence and transparency, allowing broad input and recognition beyond disciplinary awards, promoting diversity and commitment to equity so that the honor is sufficiently representative of underrepresented groups.
