The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Section H is proud to announce the inaugural Robert W. Sussman Award for Scientific Contributions to Anthropology.

AAAS Section H members are encouraged to nominate candidates they feel exemplify the ideals of this award. Nominees do not have to be members of AAAS (though nominators do).
