Applications for the Premier’s Science Awards and nominations for the WA Science Hall of Fame close at 10am on Monday 21 May 2018.

We told you it was Awards season!

Do you know a worthy scientist, tinkering away at their brilliant scientific breakthrough, who deserves some recognition?

If so, then the Premier’s Science Awards recognises and celebrates the research and engagement achievements of the WA science community, across all fields of science, including natural, medical, applied and technological science, engineering and mathematics.

The four award categories are:

  • Scientist of the Year ($50,000 prize)
  • Woodside Early Career Scientist of the Year ($10,000 prize)
  • ExxonMobil Student Scientist of the Year ($10,000 prize)
  • Chevron Science Engagement Initiative of the Year ($10,000 prize).

Members of the community are also invited to nominate Western Australians who are pre-eminent in their field to be considered for induction into the WA Science Hall of Fame.

The WA Science Hall of Fame was established in 2007 to recognise exceptional lifelong contributions from Western Australians to science, technology, engineering or mathematics. Have a look at the inductees to date to see if you spot anyone who is missing that should be there.

Further information can be found on this flyer and on the Premier’s Science Awards and WA Science Hall of Fame web pages.

You can track and promote the Awards on Twitter using the #WASciAwards hashtag.

Applications close at 10am on Monday 21 May 2018.
