National Academies Communication Awards

Posted: 1/18/2019 (Funding)

The National Academies Communication Awards recognize, promote, and encourage effective communication of science, engineering, medicine, and/or interdisciplinary work within and beyond the scientific community.

Communication across disciplines and the promotion of public engagement with science, technology, and health contribute significantly the advancement of research and the ability of science to touch our daily lives.  Nominations for the National Academies’ Communication Awards- which are accepted in four categories: Book, Film/Radio/TV, Magazine/Newspaper, and Online – recognize individuals or teams for creative, original work pertaining to issues and advances in science, engineering, and medicine for the general public.

The Communication Awards are part of the Keck Futures Initiative, created in 2003 to foster interdisciplinary research and funded by a 15-year, $40 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation.  Designed to realize the untapped potential of interdisciplinary research, the Futures Initiative has become a model for convening researchers across disciplines and providing funding for innovative workshops and research across a wide variety of scientific topics.

Nominations will be accepted through February 8th, 2019. Click here for more information and to nominate.

The 2019 Communication Awards winners will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC in October.
