The Rosalind & Pei Chi Chou Award

The Rosalind and Pei Chi Chou Award for Young Authors is given at the International Symposia on Ballistics. Its purpose is to enrich the program of the Symposia by encouraging young authors in ballistics to submit papers and attend the Symposium.

The Young Author must be 35 years of age or younger at the time of the Symposium. The paper may have multiple authors, but the Young Author must have made a major contribution to the paper. An application for the Award must accompany the paper when submitted for publication in the proceedings. To be eligible for the Award, the Young Author must register at the Symposium and must give the oral or poster presentation. 

The Award selection is based solely on the written papers and judged on original contribution to the ballistic sciences. The Award consists of a plaque and a stipend, prepared by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). The plaque and stipend are presented by representatives from the International Ballistics Society and the NDIA.
