This award was established in 1993 to recognize and honor outstanding service to the Electron Devices Society and its sponsored activities. It is presented annually and the recipient is awarded a plaque and a check for US$2,500, presented at the International Electron Devices Meeting.

Eligibility is open to all active members of the IEEE and the Electron Devices Society; however, no active members of the Electron Devices Society Executive Committee, with the exception of the Sr. Past President, shall be eligible.

The Electron Devices Society Executive Committee will submit nominations for candidates that are eligible to win based on years of service and special noteworthy accomplishments and contributions as a Society Officer, BoG Member, Associate Editor and as a participant in the management of EDS sponsored meetings to the EDS Awards Chair.
