Jon Hougen Memorial Award

This award will be given annually starting at the 75th ISMS in 2022, to support the travel expenses of an exceptional young international spectroscopist who would otherwise be unable to attend the ISMS.

The award has been established through the generosity of Jon's family and colleagues in creating the Jon T. Hougen Memorial Award Fund, an endowed fund currently held at the University of Illinois that will support this travel award in perpetuity as a lasting tribute to Jon's legacy.

More details about the award will be made available in late 2021.

All members of the ISMS community are invited to contribute to this fund in Jon's memory, by making a tax-deductible gift either online or by mail. Your contribution will help ensure that the annual return on the fund will be sufficient to fully support a promising young spectroscopist's travel to the ISMS each year.
