The Premier’s Science Awards recognise and celebrate the research and engagement achievements of the Western Australian 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. I invite you to take a look at our inductees to date, to see whether you think anyone is missing that you might wish to nominate.
Further information can be found in the attached flyer and on the Premier’s Science Awards and WA Science Hall of Fame webpages. We also encourage you to track and promote the Awards on Twitter using the #WASciAwards hashtag.
Applications close at 10.00am on Monday 21 May 2018.
The Premier’s Science Awards are proudly sponsored by Chevron, ExxonMobil and Woodside.
