Four SSERVI Exploration Science Awards are given each summer during the annual NASA Exploration Science Forum. The awards range in scope from lifetime achievements to early career contributions in Exploration Science. Nominations from the community are strongly encouraged. Please click on each award below for the award description and nomination criteria.
Nominees do not need to reside in the U.S. or be a U.S. citizen; nor do they need to be a member of a SSERVI Team. The Director of SSERVI, upon recommendations by a SSERVI Exploration Science Awards Committee, is responsible for the final selection of award recipients. Any nominee who is not selected will automatically become a candidate for consideration the following two years if they still meet the award criteria. Nominations are due March 31st each year.
