The recipient of the Vannevar Bush award receives a commemorative bronze medal struck in Bush's likeness. The NSB established the Vannevar Bush Award in 1980, to honor Bush's unique contributions to public service. As science advisor to president Franklin D. Roosevelt, Bush recommended that a government entity be formed to encourage federal support of scientific research, education and technology. His report, "Science, the Endless Frontier," led to the creation of NSF in 1950, under president Harry S. Truman.
