The Israel C.

The Nominee need not be a member of the Division or of GSA, but must have made valuable contributions to the Society. The dossiers of nominees who did not receive the award in any given year will be retained and considered for two succeeding years; thus, nominations are valid for a total of three years.

Russell Award Committee members are encouraged to initiate nominations for the Award.

Nominations are currently being accepted until 15 March.
