The Society for Industrial Archaeology offers three (3) awards:
- General Tools Award: The General Tools Award is the highest honor the SIA can bestow. The award recognizes individuals who have given sustained, distinguished service to the cause of industrial archeology and is presented at the SIA’s annual business meeting.
- Vogel Prize: Named for the founding and distinguished member Robert Vogel, the award honors the author of the best article to appear in the society’s journal IA within the past three years.
- Student Travel Scholarships: The SIA awards travel scholarships to full-time students and professionals with less than three years of full-time experience. The scholarships help to offset some of the expenses of attending SIA events.
