About the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists

The Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists were established in 2007 by the Blavatnik Family Foundation to identify and honor exceptional young scientists and engineers by celebrating their extraordinary achievements, recognizing outstanding promise, and accelerating innovation through unrestricted funding. The Awards, independently administered by the New York Academy of Sciences, were established in New York and began as the Blavatnik Regional Awards for Young Scientists in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In 2014, the program expanded to include National Awards in the United States, and in 2018 national award programs were launched in both the United Kingdom and Israel. To date, the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists have honored 284 promising young scientists with awards totaling more than US$8.41 million.

The honorees of the 2020 Blavatnik Awards in the UK will be announced on January 15, 2020.
