Nomination Process

New nominations will be acepted in 2020

The IASSA Honorary Lifetime Membership Award acknowledges exemplary contributions, both academic and service oriented, to the Arctic Social Sciences and Humanities.

Multiple awards are possible.

Nominations may be submitted to the IASSA Secretariat by IASSA members at any time prior to the deadline (TBD). Nominators must be IASSA members. (The person nominated for the Award does not necessarily have to be a member.)

The IASSA Council serves as the adjudicating committee for this award.


Nomination Package

The letter of nomination must provide a succinct rationale for the nomination, and be accompanied by an electronic version of a current curriculum vitae. The nomination must be signed by three IASSA members. The letter of nomination (2pp max), signature page and curriculum vitae of the nominee should be sent as an e-mail attachment (pdf) to the IASSA Secretariat (). Electronic signatures will be accepted.

Please note: Failure to provide supporting evidence in complete and legible form is a disservice to the candidate and prejudices a fair and comprehensive assessment of the nomination.
