An Alexander von Humboldt fellow and lifetime fellow of the School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary and Westfield College, London University, Gustafson has been awarded recognitions by NASA and by ESA for "outstanding contributions", recognition by the Univ of Florida for "outstanding research activities" and he is recipient of the Anderson award for teaching. The International Astronomical Union named Asteroid 4275 “Bogustafson” in recognition of his model for the oldest solids in space, their origin, evolution and dynamics. The European Space Agency (ESA) recently flew the Rosetta mission with overall goal to verify and distinguish between this and similar models. ISU (the Institution of Surveyors of Uganda) awarded Gustafson a certificate of appreciation for "bringing integrity to the profession". He is a recipient of the ID WORLD “ID Hall of Fame Award” for life time contributions.
