AAAS Invites Nominations for the AAAS Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science

Do you know an early-career scientist or engineer whose efforts to engage the public with science and technology are worthy of recognition? Nominations are invited now through October 15 for the 2011 AAAS Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science. The award specifically focuses on recognizing individual scientists for their public engagement activities that promote interactive dialogue with a non-scientific, public audience.

The award includes a $5,000 prize and support to attend the 2012 AAAS Annual Meeting in Vancouver, B.C. Nominations may be made by AAAS affiliate organizations, universities, government agencies, media, research organizations, and individuals. The award is open to individual "early career" scientists and engineers who have been working in their current field for less than seven years at a pre-tenure or equivalent level.
