Promoting and Exemplifying an Inclusive Scientific Culture

AGU recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the Earth and space sciences through scientific research, education, science communication and outreach. We also offer grants, scholarships and other benefits for students. AGU Honorees are recognized in Honors Explorer—browse through the history of winners or search for opportunities to inspire you to nominate yourself or a peer, colleague or student. AGU is committed to making AGU honors equitable, inclusive and more representative of all scientists within the AGU community.
