- Emphasizing early-career scientists, the American Association for the Advancement of Science is seeking nominees now through October 15 for its Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science. The $5,000 prize will go to an individual scientist or engineer working for fewer than seven years at the pre-tenure or equivalent level, and who has promoted interactive dialogue with a non-scientific public audience. Find the application information here.
- The American Geophysical Union will focus on climate change communication with a new prize worth $25,000. The award will go to an AGU member-scientist, and aims to highlight "the importance of promoting scientific literacy, clarity of message, and efforts to foster respect and understanding of science-based values as they relate to the implications of climate change." Nominations are due September 30, and you can find the guidelines and application process here.
