The Mills Medal (Medallion front image)
THE MILLS MEDAL - Lieutenant General Richard P. Mills, USMC, signed the charter that established the Marine Corps Thesis Research Working Group (TRWG) (predecessor to the Naval Research Program (NRP)). He was a visionary who understood the value of education, and saw NPS as an underutilized research resource for the service. The Mills Medal was founded through the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Foundation to recognize research, analysis, or service conducted under the auspices of the Naval Research Program (NRP) that had a meritorious or conspicuous impact to a Headquarters or Fleet organization. The Foundation is in possession of the medals, certificates, and an endowment has been established to support an annual cash prize of $1000. This medal applies to all NPS Faculty (present and former), NRP funded Primary Investigators/Researchers.

Approximately two months before the annual NRWG the NRP will solicit Mills Medal nominations however NRP Topic Sponsors may nominate a principle investigator at anytime throughout the year. **Nomination Form**  Please send completed nomination forms to: nrp@nps.edu 

For CY2023 consideration, submissions must be received by: 11 March 2023.
