A jury comprising experts from academia, industry and national laboratories selects the awardees. The jury members are asked to disclose any potential conflicts of interest and to disqualify themselves without prejudice when a conflict exists. The jury is appointed by the Chair of the ACS Catalysis Division who seeks input from the Chair of the Awards Committee and other members of the ACS Catalysis Division Executive Committee. The identity of the jury members is confidential and only known to the President of the ACS Catalysis Division. Members of the jury are asked to rank the candidates and provide justification for selecting the top three candidates. After the first vote the jury may be asked to consider for a second time the candidacy of the top two candidates in selecting an awardee.
