Kharaka Award

Countries without traditionally strong geochemistry programs

Summary of Award

The IAGC Kharaka Award is bestowed annually to deserving scientists (which may include senior graduate students) from countries without traditionally strong geochemistry programs. The criteria are intentionally broad in order to honor and highlight as many scientists as possible each year - so don't hesitate and nominate a colleague! This award was made possible by IAGC member Yousif Kharaka and the many generous donations from our IAGC member community and highlights the excellent work of geochemists outside North America, Europe, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, and New Zealand. The award consists of a framed certificate plus an IAGC membership and Applied Geochemistry subscription for a term of three (3) years. The recipient will be profiled on the website, IAGC Newsletter, and Elements magazine.

Nomination Procedure

Email a completed IAGC Award Nomination Form to one of the Nomination Committee Members and cc the IAGC Business Manager at Nominations are due on December 31, 2023.
