Guidelines for Transferring an Award Nomination

If during deliberations an awards committee feels that a nomination is better suited for a different award, AMS staff will go back to the nominator and provide the information passed along from the committee.  The nominator will be given the opportunity to rewrite the nomination toward the suggested award and resubmit.  This nomination will begin a new three-year cycle with this submission.

If awards-committee deliberations result in a transfer of a nomination sufficiently in advance of the 1 May deadline, the nomination transfer could occur in time for the current award cycle.
