The Barnard Medal for Meritorious Service to Science was established in 1889 by the will of university president Frederick A. P. Barnard, and has been awarded by Columbia, based on recommendations by the National Academy of Science, every 5 years since 1895. If you win a Barnard Medal, you either already have, or will earn a Nobel prize too (in fact, the Barnard Medal pre-dates the Nobel prizes.) Not to be confused with the Barnard Medal of Distinction.

The NAS's Barnard Medal Committee unanimously recommended that no award be made in 1945, owing to the fact that World War 2 had "blanketed much of the evidence which should be considered" for the award.
