AGI Medal in Memory of Ian Campbell for Superlative Service to the Geosciences

The Medal is presented each year to a nationally recognized, living statesperson with a distinguished record of significant achievements in science, education, and administration, in support of the profession of geology and its role in society.

The award is intended to inspire us all to similarly contribute to our science, our profession, and to the public. The Medal is presented at the GSA Awards Ceremony. A GSA Foundation fund is available to support Medal costs and recipient travel if necessary.

Additional information is available from AGI

Nominations Guidelines

AGI member societies can submit Campbell Medal nominations to AGI. An AASG Campbell Medal Subcommittee considers internal nominations during the month preceding the AGI submission date, and presents a single nomination from AASG.

Nomination materials consist of a description of the basis for the candidate's nomination, a 50-word citation, and summaries of the candidate's career, contributions to geoscience, and public service, additional comments, a vitae or brief biography of the candidate, and up to three 1-page letters of support.

Selection Procedure

Each year, AGI assembles a committee to select a recommended recipient for approval by the Member Society Council at its spring meeting. Candidates are considered for a period of 3 years, and nominators can re-nominate a candidate at a later time.
