asq Awards and Scholarships
ASQ has set up and operates a comprehensive Awards Program to recognize leadership, technical achievement, and distinguished service to the profession and Society. The Society Awards Program provides for a systematic approach for the creation and overall control of society awards and society, regional, and unit scholarships.
Society Medals and Awards will be administered by a committee that bears the name of the award and reports to the Society Awards Board.
Recognize outstanding leadership in quality with ASQ's prestigious medals and awards. The awards recognize individuals for superior achievements in the development, promotion, and communication of quality information and technology. Awards and medals are named after people who have made outstanding achievements in the field of quality. Anyone, regardless of membership may make nominations. These awards are presented at ASQ's World Conference on Quality and Improvement in the spring of each year.
