Honoring Excellence

At SACNAS we honor the work of our community's role models, leaders, and emergent scientists. Honoring excellence, not to the exclusion of others, helps us celebrate the achievements of fellow SACNISTAs. Through our awards programs, SACNAS strives to provide examples of fine science and mentoring in the spirit of helping others develop to the best of their ability by providing inspiration and examples of excellence.
