Arthur S. Flemming Awards

Celebrating 65 years of outstanding men and women in the federal government

Established in 1948, the Flemming Awards honor outstanding federal employees. Recognized by the president of the United States, agency heads, and the private sector, the winners are selected from all areas of the federal service.

The Flemming alumni include many whose names are well-known.  To name a few, past award recipients include Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Paul Volcker, Jr., John Chancellor, Neil Armstrong, Mary Elizabeth Hanford (now Elizabeth Dole), Robert Gates, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and William Phillips (Nobel laureate in 1997).

More than 500 individuals have received the award to date.

The 2014 nomination form is now available.  Please visit the Nominate page for more information. Thank you to all of the federal agencies who nominated outstanding public servants this past year!
