Applications open for Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science 2022

1 March 2022

Celebrating outstanding support and mentorship in science, the Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science recognise those who support early career researchers in their career development. Focused on a different country or region each year, this year’s award focuses on mentors in Singapore, and invites former mentees to nominate a mentor that has made a significant contribution to their careers. 

The Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science is made up of two categories:

  1. The award for lifetime achievement in mentoring is open to individuals who were awarded their PhD or Medical Doctorate before 1995.
  2. The award for mid-career achievement - awarded jointly between two mentors - is open to individuals who were awarded their PhD or Medical Doctorate in or after 1995.

Each award comes with a cash prize of US$10,000 (which will be shared by the joint winners).

Key dates:

  • Applications open - Tuesday 1 March 2022
  • Primary nominations form deadline - Friday 29 April 2022
  • Supporting nominations and nominee consent deadline - Friday 13 May
