On April 27th, 2010, Amar was selected as a 2010 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar.
This is quite a prestigious award --- the number of recipients of this award is limited to 14 per year, and according to the explanation of the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation's website, the Foundation seeks young chemists "who demonstrate leadership in research and education. Nominations must provide compelling evidence of the advance of important knowledge in the chemical sciences by the nominee".
Amar is very much excited about receiving this award and looks forward to using the award's funds for stimulating more creative research from his students.
