Macelwane Annual Awards were established by the American Meteorological Society to honor the late Rev. James B. Macelwane, S. J., a world-renowned authority of seismology, who was a geophysicist and Dean of the Institute of Technology, Saint Louis University, until his death in 1956. Award stipends are supported by Weather Corporation of America, private meteorological consultants, Saint Louis, Missouri. The author of the paper awarded first place by the committee of judges receives a stipend of $300, the author of the second- place paper receives $200, and the author of the third place paper receives $100. The purpose of these awards is to stimulate interest in meteorology among college students through the encouragement of original student papers concerned with some phase of the atmospheric sciences. All registered undergraduates of a college or university in the Americas are eligible to participate. The only restrictions are that the participating student must be enrolled as an undergraduate at the time the paper is written, and no more than two students from any one institution may enter papers in any one contest. To consider papers for the Macelwane Awards, the committee of judges must receive 1) the paper with a letter of application from the author, and 2) a letter from the department head or other faculty member of the major department, confirming that the author was an undergraduate student at the time the paper was written and indicating the elements of the paper that represent original contributions by the student. The above information must be received at the headquarters of the American Meteorological Society, 45 Beacon Street, Boston, MA 02108-3693, during the 12-month period preceding 15 June of the current year. The evaluation of papers occurs during the summer. Announcement of the recipients of the awards is made at the following Annual Meeting of the Society. The Howard T. Orville Scholarship in Meteorology honors the late Howard T. Orville, head of the Naval Aerological Service, 1940- 50, whose service was marked by many commendations. After his retirement from the navy, he held key industrial posts and was chairman of the Advisory Committee on Weather Control in 1953. Capt. Orville was president of the American Meteorological Society, 1948-49. Through a bequest from the estate of Howard T. Orville and contributions from members of his family, the Society gives an annual scholarship of $2000. The Howard H. Hanks, Jr., Scholarship in Meteorology honors the late Howard H. Hanks, Jr., who was vice-president of Weather Corporation of America when his career was cut short by a plane crash in 1969. A donation by William J. Hartnett, president of Weather Corporation of America, provides funds for the scholarship in the amount of $700 per annum. The Paul H. Kutschenreuter Scholarship honors Paul H. Kutschenreuter, former deputy director of the U.S. Weather Bureau and a former assistant administrator of the Environmental Science Services Administration. Mr. Kutschenreuter also served as the U.S. delegate to numerous World Meteorological Organization (WMO) meetings and served as president of the Commission of Synoptic Meteorology of the WMO for a four-year term. He has funded a $5000 scholarship to be awarded annually. The Orville and Hanks scholarships are awarded to students on the basis of their academic excellence and achievement. The Kutschenreuter Scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic excellence, achievement, and financial need. All scholarships are available to students who will complete their undergraduate degree during the 12-month period from 1 September of the year of application through 31 August of the following year. Candidates must be majoring in atmospheric or related oceanic and hydrologic sciences, and/or must show clear intent to make the atmospheric or related sciences their career. Candidates must be enrolled full time in an accredited U.S. institution, and must have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 at the time of application. Candidates must be citizens of the United States or hold permanent resident status. No age restriction exists.
