ASM International’s awards program is a decades-old tradition with the first Henry Marion Howe Medal awarded in 1923. Awards presented range from certificates, plaques, honorariums, cash prizes, as well as bronze, silver and gold medal awards. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the traditional in-person awards ceremony will not be held this year. Honorees and media are encouraged to check the ASM International website for more information regarding formal presentation plans in 2020 and 2021.

Nominations for next year’s awards are open and details can be found here: ASM 2021 Awards.

In addition to the award recipients, ASM has announced its Class of 2020 Fellows. This international class of Fellows represents many top universities, such as Texas A&M and Case Western Reserve, and companies such as General Motors, and countries, including Sweden and Australia.

The Fellow of ASM (FASM) was established in 1969 to provide recognition to ASM members for their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering. It is considered one of the highest honors and provides ASM with a broad based forum of technical and professional leaders to serve as advisors to ASM.
