NSERC Awards for Science Promotion

The NSERC Awards for Science Promotion honour people and groups that are inspirational in the way they promote science to the general public.

The NSERC Awards for Science Promotion are an opportunity for Canada's science community to recognize, support and encourage outstanding science promoters.

NSERC invites all Canadians with an interest in science, including teachers and university researchers, to contribute to the success of this annual effort by nominating the people who are making others aware of what science means to all of us.

Rewarding Outstanding Science Promotion

The achievements of individual and group recipients of the NSERC Awards for Science Promotion will be celebrated at a public ceremony. Individual recipients will receive a $10,000 award and group recipients a $25,000 award. In both cases, the funds are to support further science promotion activities. Funds paid to winners of this prize are subject to the PromoScience Grants Guide.
