Campuses encouraged to nominate young scientists for ASPIRE Prize

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC), an organization of 21 Pacific-Rim countries, including the United States, has announced its 2015 competition for the ASPIRE Prize.

The ASPIRE Prize-which stands for the APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education-honors young scientists who have demonstrated a commitment to both excellence in scientific research, as evidenced by scholarly publication, and cooperation with scientists from other APEC-member economies. The theme of this year’s competition is “Disaster Risk Reduction: Understanding the Role of Climate Change and Variability.” Campuses are encouraged to participate.

Since each country submits a single nomination for the ASPIRE Prize, campuses interested in having a young scientist considered for the award should submit a nomination to the U.S. State Department by Friday, April 20, 2015. Nomination materials are available on the ASPIRE Prize website.
