|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 / Summer 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.
