The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) will accept nominations for the annual NAI Fellowship through November 1, 2014. Election as an NAI Fellow is a distinction accorded to inventors who have demonstrated innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made an impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.
Nominations are now open for the AAAS Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science. This award recognizes early career scientists who demonstrate excellence not only in their research careers but also in promoting meaningful dialogue between science and society.
The recipient of the award will win a prize of $5,000, a commemorative plaque, and complimentary registration and travel to the AAAS Annual Meeting in San Jose.
Nominations are due October 15.
