Early Career Award for Public Engagement With Science – Aug 1
American Association for the Advancement of Science Invites Nominations for Early Career Award for Public Engagement With Science
The American Association for the Advancement of Science is inviting nominations for its Early Career Award for Public Engagement.
Established in 2010, the award recognizes an early-career scientist or engineer who demonstrates excellence in his/her contribution to public engagement with science activities. (For the purposes of the award, public engagement activities are defined as an individual’s active participation in efforts to engage with the public on science- and technology-related issues and promote meaningful dialogue between science and society.) Through the program, a single recipient will receive a cash prize of $5,000, a commemorative plaque, complimentary registration to the AAAS annual meeting, and reimbursement for reasonable hotel and travel expenses to attend the AAAS annual meeting.
To be eligible, candidates must be a scientist or engineer actively conducting research in any scientific discipline (including social sciences and medicine) and be embedded in academia, government, or industry. Public engagement activities must be above and beyond job responsibilities. (“Early career”) is defined as an individual who has completed his/her terminal degree within seven years of the deadline for nominations.)
Nominations may be made by individuals, universities, government agencies, media, research organizations, or AAAS affiliate organizations. Self-nominations are allowed.
See the American Association for the Advancement of Science website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
Deadline: August 1, 2019
