Many professional astronomers in North America are members of the American Astronomical Society (AAS). The mission of the American Astronomical Society is to enhance and share humanity’s scientific understanding of the universe.
Those interested in Astronomy now have the opportunity to receive a $1500 award through AAS with the Annie Jump Cannon Award in Astronomy. This award is open to female North American astrologers to apply for. It will be granted to one individual within five years of receiving her PhD in the year designated for the award.
The recipient of the Annie Jump Cannon Award in Astronomy will also receive an invitation to speak at an AAS meeting, with travel expenses paid. Self-nominations for this award are allowed.
