The vision of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) is to advance breakthrough discoveries in neuroscience and promote innovative translation of scientific advances with the goal of improving the health of people everywhere.
To that end, and with support from the Dana Foundation, SfN is inviting applications for its Science Educator Award program. Through the program, up to two neuroscientists who have made significant contributions to educating the public about neuroscience will be honored: one who conducts education activities full time and/or one who devotes his/her time primarily to research while conducting outreach, policy, and education activities.
Recipients of awards will receive a $5,000 honorarium, the opportunity to write a feature commentary on science education in eNeuro, and complimentary registration, transportation (economy air or ground), and two nights hotel accommodations for the SfN annual meeting.
To be eligible, nominees need not be an SfN member, but nominations must be made by or endorsed by an SfN member. Self-nomination is not permitted.
See the Society for Neuroscience website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previous award-winners.
