Nominations for the 2020 Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science are now open.
Each year the Australian Government honours Australia’s scientists, innovators and science teachers through the PM’s Prizes. Recipients share in $750 000 prize money across seven prizes – two $250 000 prizes for science and innovation, three $50 000 prizes for early to mid-career researchers and innovators, and two $50 000 prizes for teaching in primary and secondary schools.
Nominations are open from 6 February – 12 March 2020.
The Australian Government would like nominations to reflect the diversity of the communities that the Prizes celebrate. They encourage people to consider nominating someone from a group historically underrepresented in science such as women or Indigenous Australians, or someone from a regional or remote area.
