The following awards are supported and awarded by The Coblentz Society.
The William G. Fateley Student Award is given annually to recognize outstanding contributions to vibrational spectroscopy during a current Ph.D. program.
The Craver Award honoring Clara Craver is presented annually to an outstanding young molecular spectroscopist whose efforts are in the area of applied analytical vibrational spectroscopy. Clara Craver was the editor of the Coblentz Desk reference and other subsequent libraries that later became databases of infrared spectra that is the foundation for the application of modern vibrational spectroscopy. Her efforts resulted in the creation of the endowment that supports the Coblentz Society and many of the awards that it gives out annually. The candidate must be under the age of 45 on January 1st of the year of the award. The work may include any aspect of infrared (NIR, MIR, or Far), and/or THz, and/or Raman spectroscopy in applied analytical vibrational spectroscopy. The nominees may come from an academia, government lab, or industrial backgrounds
