Nominations are open for the 2023 Prime Minister's Prizes for Science (the Prizes).
From now until 9 February 2023, you can nominate your leader, mentor, employee, colleague or peer for one of 7 prestigious awards in scientific research, research-based innovation and excellence in science teaching.
The Prizes recognise the achievements of scientists, innovators and science teachers across diverse disciplines and career stages.
Nominating is easy. You just need to:
- ensure your nominee is an Australian citizen or permanent resident of Australia
- provide a short summary of your nominee’s achievements
- supply contact details of two supporters and two independent referees for the nomination, and supporting documentation.
Some prize categories may also require contact details of two independent referees in addition to supporters.
Depending on the category, prize recipients receive up to $250,000 in prize money and have the opportunity to showcase their scientific discovery, commercial venture or teaching achievements nationally.
Importantly, their achievements are inspirational - encouraging people of all ages and all parts of the community to continue to pursue their goals in science, innovation and teaching, and help young people realise the variety of exciting careers on offer in STEM fields.
