Michel T. Halbouty Geosciences Medal
The Michel T. Halbouty Geosciences Medal is conferred by the Dean, College of Geosciences for distinguished achievement in the development of earth resources and in the application of geoscience to the discovery, use and conservation of earth resources.
- The recipient must be a graduate of Texas A&M University, or must have served Texas A&M University as a member of its faculty, staff, or administration.
- A candidate must be living at the time of selection and be willing to present himself or herself in person to receive the medal at a time and place designated by the Dean, College of Geosciences (to be awarded in the Fall of each year beginning in 2016).
Guidelines for Consideration of Candidates:
Nominees for the award will be selected for their substantive contributions to exploration, development or conservation of earth resources. Contributions may be in a variety of forms such as substantial advancement of the techniques for applying geoscientific knowledge to technological, economic, and social problems; farsighted and dynamic direction of resource development efforts by industry; innovative leadership in the administration of research and teaching related to earth resources exploration, development and conservation; and substantive contributions to public understanding of the importance of earth resources.
Contributions to Texas A&M University in the form of teaching, research and student relations will not be considered because an adequate award system, supported by the Association of Former Students, already exists for recognition of outstanding teachers, researchers, and student counselors.
Former students employed by the University are not eligible during their term of employment.
