The Presidential Award is one of the oldest and most prestigious science and technology awards given by the U.S. Government, and recognizes scientists of international stature for their lifetimes of exceptional scientific, technical, engineering, and/or management achievements related to the development, use, control, or production of energy (broadly interpreted as encompassing all basic and applied research, science, and technology supported by the U.S. Department of Energy and its programs). A Fermi Award winner receives a citation signed by the President of the United States and the Secretary of Energy, a gold medal bearing the likeness of Enrico Fermi, and a $375,000 honorarium. In the event the Award is given to more than one individual in the same year, the recipients share the honorarium.
