The Armenson Medal has been granted since 2020 and began from a small share of personal funds set aside by J. A. Armenson. Soon after developing initial designs of the medal and creating a rulebook, J. A. Armenson handed responsibilities to Trustees and Jurors with the intent to voluntarily limit his direct involvement while continuing to oversee the selection process, participate in its key decisions and manage critical activities. The categories in which the medal is presented are Literature, Music, Cinema, Art, Philosophy, Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, General.
