Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Prize in Computing

The award carries a prize of $250,000. Financial support for the award is provided by Infosys Ltd.

Eligibility: The award is given for achievements during the early years of an individual's career, although enough time must have passed to clearly establish evidence of impact (i.e., candidates are typically within 8-16 years of the terminal degree, with consideration made for interrupted or second careers).
