THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION’S HIGHEST HONOR
The Alan T. Waterman Award is the highest honor awarded by the National Science Foundation for promising, early-career researchers. The annual award has been bestowed upon early career scientists and engineers since 1975, when Congress established the award to honor the agency’s first director. The annual award recognizes an outstanding young researcher in any field of science or engineering supported by the National Science Foundation. In addition to a medal, the awardee receives a grant of $1,000,000 over a five-year period for scientific research or advanced study in the mathematical, physical, biological, engineering, social or other sciences at the institution of the recipient’s choice.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria
Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, 40 years of age or younger, or no more than 10 years beyond receipt of their Ph.D. degrees by December 31 of the year in which they are nominated. Candidates should have demonstrated exceptional individual achievements in scientific or engineering research of sufficient quality to place them at the forefront of their peers. Criteria include originality, innovation, and significant impact on their field.
