Eric and Wendy Schmidt Awards for Excellence in Science Communication

Application deadline: April 3, 2022

The National Academies Eric and Wendy Schmidt Awards for Excellence in Science Communication encourage high-quality science communication and help build a diverse community of science journalists, research scientists, and institutions, which will help society meet the challenges and opportunities posed by climate change, future pandemics, human genome editing, and other issues that can only be understood and navigated with the help of effective science communication. 

The awards present prizes to science journalists and research scientists who have developed creative, original work that addresses issues and advances in science, engineering, and/or medicine for the general public.

Submissions are accepted in six categories: freelance journalists, early career journalists, reporting at the local/regional level (science journalism); and graduate students, early career researchers, and later career researchers (science communication by research scientists).
