The Technical Division on Reference Materials (TDRM) Award recognizes contributions and encourages active participation of TDRM members.

Nominees should be a TDRM member scientist or scientific group that has:
To nominate a TDRM Award candidate, submit a maximum 500-word justification statement detailing the unique or significant contribution of the nominee. Two additional support letters may also be included.
Nominations are reviewed by a committee of TDRM members consisting of a Chair, the Vice Chair and three other appointed members of the TDRM.
The AOAC INTERNATIONAL Inés Cereijo Technical Division on Reference Materials (TDRM) Award is offered annually to international undergraduate and graduate students to promote awareness of the need for method performance evaluation at an earlier point in a chemist’s career.
Winners receive $500.00 USD and support to attend the AOAC INTERNATIONAL Annual Meeting, including a $250.00 USD travel grant, registration fee, and hotel room. Winners also receive a one-year AOAC INTERNATIONAL Student Membership and one-year of membership in the Technical Division on Reference Materials.
Because not all colleges have research facilities, nominees are evaluated based on a report describing either the use of a reference material for method performance evaluation or the development of a new reference material.
Submissions should detail use of a reference material for a specific application, such as method performance evaluation or method validation, or the development of a reference material to fit a new or existing need. Learn more or submit an application.
