GSA Honorary Fellow Award
Exceptional geoscientists who have distinguished themselves in exemplary scientific investigations may be elected as Honorary Fellows. Candidates are non-North Americans who live and work outside of North America. Most Honorary Fellows have been elected after many years of outstanding and internationally recognized contributions to the science. Honorary Fellows do not have to be members of GSA to be considered. The program was established by the GSA Council in 1909, and since then, except during a few war years, one or more Honorary Fellows have been elected annually. The Council of the Society encourages the membership to submit names of qualified candidates for this honor. In preparing a nomination, it is imperative that the original research and scientific advances of the candidate be stressed.
