Springer Nature: Inviting applications for ‘Nature Research Awards for Inspiring Science and Innovating Science’ to celebrate and support the achievements of leading women in science and of those who have encouraged girls and young women to engage with STEM subjects around the world.

Funding brief: Nature Research is proud and excited to announce our inaugural Inspiring Science Award and Innovating Science Award, in partnership with The Estée Lauder Companies.

Nature Research has always strived to support gender equity and to showcase the work of female researchers. The aim of the two new Nature Research Awards, in partnership with The Estée Lauder Companies, is to celebrate and support the achievements of leading women in science and of those who have encouraged girls and young women to engage with STEM subjects around the world.

In 2018, they are launching two new Nature Research Awards: the Inspiring Science Award and the Innovating Science Award

Inspiring Science Award: The Inspiring Science Award welcomes nominations of exceptional scientists who self-identify as female and who are within 10 years of completing their PhD. They encourage nominations from around the globe and from all subject areas. Candidates should be nominated by laboratory heads, department heads or someone else from their institute.  This award is based on academic achievement, but our independent judging process and panel will ensure that those working in adverse circumstances or in regions where there is limited access to the scientific literature will not be unfairly disadvantaged.

Innovating Science Award: The Innovating Science Award is open to everyone (individuals and groups) who works on projects or initiatives that encourage girls or young women to become more aware of, or engaged in, any STEM subject in any region around the world.  Candidates should apply using the application form.
