Waldemar Lindgren Award
The Waldemar Lindgren Award is offered annually to a young scientist whose published research represents an outstanding contribution to economic geology. The award which consists of a citation, dues-free membership in the Society, and travel to annual SEG Conference for the presentation, is not restricted to the candidate's nationality, place of employment, or membership in the Society. The award is given for contributions to economic geology from any subdiscipline of geology (including, among others, structural geology, mineralogy, environmental geology, hydrology, petrology, geochemistry, stratigraphy, geophysics, and mine geology). Originally awarded for excellence in research by a student, the award, beginning in 1972, is awarded for research in economic geology. The contribution shall be measured by consideration of one to three papers published by age 35.
The awardee must be less than 37 years of age on January 1 of the year in which the award is presented. Any SEG member in good standing may nominate candidates for this award. The impact and importance of the nominee’s publications (for work completed by the age of 35) must be addressed in all letters of support. Nominees who are not selected in their first year of nomination, but are still eligible will be considered for awards in following years. Visit the Medals and Awards page for nominating instructions.
