The Editors of Science and the NOMIS Foundation are looking to recognize young researchers asking fundamental questions at the intersection of life and social sciences via the new NOMIS & Science Young Explorer Award.
The award is presented for outstanding, innovative, and interdisciplinary research performed by the applicant as described in a 1,000-word essay.
The Grand Prize winner will be awarded a cash prize in the amount of $15,000 and be provided travel and accommodation to the award ceremony, if applicable. Additionally, the Grand Prize winner is invited to present a proposal for funding to the NOMIS board, as well as receive a 5-year digital subscription to Science, and have their winning essay published in Science, in print and online.
To be eligible, applicants must be younger than thirty-five and hold an MD, PhD, or MD/PhD at the time of entry. The award will be granted annually to one young scientist based on work done in the past 3 years.
The deadline to apply for the 2021 cycle is May 15, 2021.
