The International Aerosol Fellow Award is granted to recognize outstanding contributions to Aerosol Science and Technology through research, technical development, education and service. Nominations of candidates for the award are invited. The nominator must be a member of an IARA member society, but the nominee can be any individual, both inside and outside IARA member societies. At least three supporting letters must be included in the nomination.

I encourage all aerosol scientists to nominate persons for this outstanding award.
