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. 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.
