Ms. Sue Wagner-Nevada Gaming Commissioner, former Nevada Lieutenant
Governor, DRI employee, and widow of Dr. Peter B. Wagner-created the Peter
B. Wagner Memorial Award for Women in Atmospheric Sciences in 1998.

Dr. Peter B. Wagner, an atmospheric scientist who had been a faculty member
at the Desert Research Institute since 1968, was killed while conducting
research in a 1980 plane crash that also claimed the lives of three other
Institute employees.

In 1981, Dr. Wagner's family and friends established a memorial scholarship
to provide promising graduate students in the Desert Research Institute's
Atmospheric Sciences Program a cash award to further their professional
careers. Ms. Wagner later extended that opportunity nationally and
specifically for women, through the creation of the Peter B. Wagner Memorial
Award in 1998.


The Peter B. Wagner Award


The Peter B. Wagner Memorial Award for Women in Atmospheric Sciences will be
based on a paper competition and awarded to a woman pursuing a Masters or
Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences or a related program at a university in the
United States. The amount of the award is $1,500.


Eligibility


To be eligible, applicants must be pursuing a Masters or Ph.D. in a program
of atmospheric sciences or a related field as of the application deadline
date. Applicants must submit a paper based on original research directly
related to the identification, clarification, or resolution of an
atmospheric or climatic problem.


Selection Criteria


The Selection Committee is composed of faculty from the Atmospheric Sciences
Graduate Program. Papers will be evaluated based on the following content
areas:

. Originality of ideas expressed and presentation of concept;

. How well the subject matter relates to real-world atmospheric or
climatic problems or their resolution; and

. How well the research is defined by the introduction, methods,
results, and conclusions of the manuscript.

An entry into this competition can be based on a manuscript that has been
either submitted, accepted for publication, or appeared in press within the
past 12 month before the application deadline. Authors are encouraged to
address broader impacts of their work for the field of atmospheric sciences.
Manuscripts submitted for consideration for this award should be a report of
work done primarily by the applicant. The applicant should be the first
author but not necessarily the single author. The submitted manuscript
should be in a form acceptable for publication in a scientific journal.
Length should be no more than 15 pages of double-spaced text, exclusive of
figures, title page, and references using minimum 12-point font. Reprints of
published papers will be accepted, if it appeared in press within the past
12 months. Submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the Award Selection

letter describing her graduate program of study by email or regular mail
(postmarked by the deadline date) to:
