He was elected a Corresponding Member of the Siberian Division of the Soviet Academy of Sciences on March 28, 1958, and was promoted to an Academician of the Division of Nuclear Physics on June 26, 1964.
Academician Budker was the founder (in 1959) and first Director of the Institute of Nuclear Physics in Akademgorodok, Russia. His portrait decorates the famous Round Table Room in the Institute. After his death, the Institute was renamed the Budker Institute for Nuclear Physics in his honour.
Budker's life and works were celebrated in a collection of essays by his colleagues, including Pyotr Kapitsa, Lev Landau, and Andrei Sakharov, and two by Budker himself. The collection, G. I. Budker: Reflections & Remembrances (edited by Boris N. Breizman) was published in 1988 and was later translated into English by James W. Van Dam.
