Three letters of reference including one from a school official are required, along with a resume or biographical sketch. • The applicant completes an application and submits for state review during the academic year. The nomination period runs through the application cycle up to one month before the application deadline. Review of Nominations • State coordinators convene state selection committees of prominent mathematicians, scientists, mathematics and science educators, and past awardees to select up to three mathematics category and three science category finalists for recognition at the state level and for submission to NSF. To ensure consistency, state selection committees review their applications using the same criteria and scoring information that was approved by OSTP. Following the state review applicants are given two weeks to complete an addendum to the state application that addresses state reviewer comments. • NSF (EHR) convenes a National Selection Committee of prominent mathematicians, scientists, mathematics and science educators, and past awardees that review the application packets of the state finalists including VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:32 Sep 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 the addendum and make recommendations to NSF. NSF reviews the state selection committee recommendations and recommends to OSTP, when possible, one awardee in the mathematics category and one in the science category for all eligible states/ jurisdictions. Alternatively, NSF may recommend two awardees from a discipline in a jurisdiction, when warranted. Award Ceremony The awardees are hosted for 3–4 days in Washington, DC, for a variety of professional development sessions and celebratory activities. Each awardee receives a citation signed by the President and $10,000 from NSF. If scheduling permits, the President meets the teachers for a photo opportunity at the White House. The Director of OSTP and the Director of NSF present the citations to the teachers at an awards ceremony. Awardees also have the opportunity to meet their congressional representatives and education representatives from other federal agencies. Estimate of Burden: These are annual award programs with application deadlines varying according to the program. Public burden also may vary according to program; however, across all the programs, it is estimated that each submission will average 19 hours per respondent. If the nominator is thoroughly familiar with the disciplinary background of the nominee, time spent to complete the nomination may be considerably reduced. Respondents: Individuals, businesses or other for-profit organizations, universities, non-profit institutions, and Federal and State governments. Estimated Number of Responses per Award: 1800 responses, broken down as follows: For the President’s National Medal of Science, 80; for the Alan T. Waterman Award, 70; for the Vannevar Bush Award, 20; for the Public Service Award, 30; for the PAESMEM, 200; and 1400 for the PAEMST. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 41,350 hours, broken down by 1,600 hours for the President’s National Medal of Science (20 hours per 80 respondents); 1,400 hours for the Alan T.
