USPAS Prize for Achievement in Accelerator Physics and Technology

Charter:

The USPAS prize honors individuals by recognizing their outstanding achievements over the full range of accelerator physics and technology.

Each of these categories is heavily considered: 
1)  Intrinsic scientific/technical quality and importance to the field 
2)  Realization of concepts in working accelerators; leadership and vision in machine building; putting concepts into practice 
3)  Level of impact: degree to which concepts have led to the production of more or better science or has the potential for doing so in the future
4)  Other factors, especially teaching/encouragement/stimulation of young scientists and engineers

The prizes are awarded on a competitive basis without bias to race, sex, and/or nationality. Two achievement prizes are awarded every two years. One of the two prizes will be awarded to an early-career scientist under 45 years of age.

Recipients will receive a certificate of merit and a cash award of $3000.00. The awards are made possible by donations from Argonne National Laboratory; Brookhaven Science Associates; Fermi Research Alliance, LLC; SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and the Jefferson Science Associates Initiatives Funds Program.
