Prizes Awarded by Other Groups

This list is a list of prizes awarded by a variety of non-astronomical organizations for which astronomers are likely to be eligible.

  • Cosmology Prize of the Peter Gruber Foundation. Recognizes fundamental scientific advances that shape the way we see and comprehend our universe. See AAS Newsletter, June 2000. Presumably information will appear in the future at The International Congress of Distinguished Awards. The award is given in conjunction with the IAU.
  • Institute of Navigation Brahe Award. This award has been initiated for 2001 for contributions to navigation in interplanetary space. Astronomers are identified as likely winners. This award is not yet there (October 2000), but presumably details will be available in the near future at the ION web pages.
