Nomination Criteria

The Vincent J. DeVito Distinguished Service Award (DSA), named for the Institute’s long- time Secretary, recognizes individuals who have made long-term, noteworthy contributions to the nuclear materials management profession.  Eligible candidates are not required to be INMM members, but are expected to be internationally recognized for their contributions to nuclear materials management.

The Charles E.

The eligible organization does not have to be a Sustaining Member of the Institute in order to be considered, however, eligible individual candidates are required to be active members in good standing of the Institute. 

The Early Career Award recognizes members of the INMM who are 35 years of age or younger (as of the date of the nomination deadline) and who have made a singular outstanding achievement or a series of notable achievements in an area of nuclear materials management relevant to the Institute and its technical divisions.  Candidate’s notable achievement must not be related to work performed in pursuit of an academic degree. In the case of a series of achievements, work related to a degree may be considered. The notable achievement or series of achievements must be accomplished by the nominee while a member of the Institute. The nominee must be the sole or main contributor to the notable achievement.
