Nature Research Co-Sponsors Awards for Women in Science

Nature Research joined forces with The Estée Lauder Companies to create two global awards honoring women in science. According to the press release, “women [make] up less than a third of the world's researchers and [face] barriers to pursuing long-term careers that lead to senior positions in science,” so this partnership aims to “put a spotlight on both exceptional achievements of female scientists and those working to promote greater inclusiveness.”

The Nature Research Award for Inspiring Science “honors female scientists who have excelled in scientific discovery and have completed their PhD within the last ten years.”

The Nature Research Award for Innovating Science “recognizes an individual or an organization that has led a grassroots initiative to support increased access to, or interest in, STEM subjects for girls and women around the globe.”

Nominations for the awards will close on June 11, 2018. The winners, announced in October, “will receive up to $10,000 to spend on initiatives linked to the award and free training from Nature Masterclasses” plus additional grant funds.

For more information, read the press release.
