Recognizing Excellence in the Field of Aging

Recipients of the 2015
ASA Leadership Awards were honored at the Opening General Session of the
Aging in America Conference
on March 23, 2015 in Chicago, Il.

ASA takes pride in recognizing leaders in the field who not only contribute to the success of ASA, but to the field at large. At left are links to each of the awards where you can view descriptions, view current and previous winners of these awards, as well as the criteria for each.

Leadership Awards nominations will require completing a few questions about the nominee’s specific contributions, a history of the nominee’s leadership experience in ASA (board, committee or council service) if appropriate, a letter of recommendation and a biosketch of the nominee. The Graduate Student Research Award has specific criteria and requires submission of the research paper.

The Constituent Group Award nominations require the nominee’s biosketch and answering specific questions related to the individual award.
