Deadline for submitting project grant applications is Oct. 31. More information can be found at the ASTM website.

ASTM Professor of the Year Award

ASTM International has established the Professor of the Year award to recognize and reward the contributions of educators in developing students’ understanding of standards.

Candidates for the award include professors and instructors at an accredited university worldwide who have demonstrated outstanding use of ASTM standards in their teaching. 

Cash awards will be given to the winning educator and their respective university. Nominate your colleagues and department members for their exemplary use of ASTM standards in the classroom.

The Professor of the Year Award will be awarded every two years (in the odd numbered years).

August 31 is the deadline for submitting nominations for the 2017 Professor of the Year award. More information, including criteria, rules, and a nomination form can be found at the student member section of ASTM's website.
