ECS Corrosion Division Rusty Award for Mid-Career Excellence

Nominations are now being accepted for the new ECS Corrosion Division Rusty Award for Mid-Career Excellence. The award was established recently by the ECS Honors and Awards Program and Corrosion Division to recognize a mid-career scientist or engineer’s achievements and contributions to the field of corrosion science and technology.

Award

A framed certificate; US $1,000 prize; and complimentary meeting registration are awarded to the recipient. The award is bestowed at the fall ECS biannual meeting; the recipient is expected to lecture on their research at a designated ECS Corrosion Division symposium during that meeting.
