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 a key piece of the Society's Fall 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.
 

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.

 

Our unrestricted account supports advocacy efforts, operations, and membership services.
