|AAS Initiative Endowment Fund||With the detection of gravitational waves, the ongoing robotic exploration of the solar system, and a powerful new generation of ground- and space-based observatories under construction, the astronomical sciences are now poised to embark on a bold new voyage of discovery.
Let's build a foundation for this exciting future. As the centerpiece of the Society's Spring 2016 Campaign, we invite you to help establish the AAS Initiative Endowment Fund. Our goal this year is to raise at least $20,000 -- the threshold set for the fund's formal approval by the AAS Council.
|Annie Jump Cannon Award in Astronomy||
The Cannon Award, for outstanding research and promise for future research, is given to a North American female astronomer within five years of receiving her PhD.
