The Blavatnik National Awards for Young Scientists honor America’s most innovative, young, faculty-rank scientists and engineers. These Awards celebrate the past accomplishments and future potential of young scientists working in the three disciplinary categories of Life Sciences, Physical Sciences & Engineering, and Chemistry. Each year, one Blavatnik National Awards Laureate in each disciplinary category will receive $250,000 in unrestricted funds, and additional nominees will be recognized as Finalists.
Nominations are accepted from an invited group of research universities, independent research institutions, academic medical centers, and government laboratories from across the United States, as well as from the Awards’ own Scientific Advisory Council, composed of renowned science and technology leaders. Past Laureates of the Blavatnik National Awards are also invited to submit nominations.
