The Percy Nicholls Award is presented for notable scientific or industrial achievement in the field of solid fuels. It consists of a framed certificate presented jointly by the Fuels and Combustion Technologies (FACT) Division of the ASME and the Coal Division of the AIME.
At a joint Fuels Meeting of the ASME Fuels Division and the AIME Coal Division in St. Louis, MO in 1942, the fall after Mr. Nicholls died, the first Percy Nicholls Award "for notable scientific or industrial achievement in the field of solid fuels" was presented. This award was established by joint action of the two Divisions to commemorate the outstanding contributions that Mr. Nicholls had made in the science and technology of fuels utilization.
The Percy Nicholls Award recipient must be a member in good standing of either the ASME or the AIME. It is not limited to an American citizen. A joint Board of the two society divisions selects the recipient.
Prior to October 1, 2012, the ASME Chair of the 2012 Percy W. Nicholls Award Committee (Mark Bryden, Ph.D., email@example.com) should receive any nominations to be presented to the full Committee. Nominations, accompanied by two letters of recommendation, should give a full and complete statement of the reasons for proposing the candidate, with a record of his professional and industrial achievements in sufficient detail to enable the Committee to pass judgment on the candidate's worthiness to receive the award. The Awardee will be notified by December 1, 2012 and will be presented the Award at the 38th Clearwater Conference co-sponsored by ASME, DOE, and CTA (Coal Technology Association), to be held in Clearwater, Florida, Summer, 2013.
