Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Donna Strickland Prize for Societal Impact of Natural Sciences and Engineering Research
The NSERC Donna Strickland Prize for Societal Impact of Natural Sciences and Engineering Research is awarded annually to an individual or team whose outstanding research, conducted in Canada in the natural sciences and engineering (NSE), has led to exceptional benefits for Canadian society, environment and/or economy.
Value: The prize is accompanied by an individual or team research grant of up to $250,000 for continued research and knowledge dissemination.
Eligibility: All researchers in the NSE, regardless of their career stage, can be nominated for this award for their research conducted in Canada. The outstanding research that led to the exceptional benefits described in the nomination must have been supported, at least partially, by NSERC, and the research must be primarily in the NSE. Self-nominations will not be accepted, and current NSERC Council members are not eligible for nomination. In order to be nominated as an individual, you must hold an NSERC research grant. In order to be nominated as a team, at least one of your team members must hold an NSERC research grant. NSERC strongly encourages nominators and university officials to consider equity, diversity and inclusion in their nomination processes.
Note: NSERC has shifted the timeline for its suite of prizes to better align with the public announcement of the recipients. The next call for nominations will be launched in August in parallel with any updates to prizes program literature on NSERC’s website. If institutional nomination/external expert review is sought (individuals may also nominate candidates outside of the institutional process), please submit a candidate suggestion form by the internal deadline to recommend a candidate to the President’s Advisory Committee on Awards, Honours and Prizes. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
