The 2015 Board of Directors of the Society of Engineering Science (SES), announced the establishment of a new SES award: The James R. Rice Medal. The creation of the new award is motivated by the recognition that while several societies, including the SES, have young-investigator awards as well as others that primarily (although not exclusively) target senior scientists, there are relatively few that are suitable for those who are in the typical mid-career age of 40-55.
