American Association For The Advancement Of Science
The Association’s Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science recognizes early-career scientists and engineers who demonstrate excellence in contributing to public engagement with science activities. The Award defines public engagement activities as the 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. Public engagement activities can include informal science education, public outreach, public policy, and/or science communication activities such as science exhibits, science cafes, science fairs, and social and online media. Nominees must be an early-career scientist or engineer in higher education, government, or industry actively conducting research in any scientific discipline including social sciences and medicine. Groups or institutions will not be considered for this award. “Early career” is defined as an individual who has been in his/her current field for less than seven years and pre-tenure or job equivalent. Post-doctoral students are eligible to apply. One scientist or engineer will be chosen to receive the Award annually. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
