How to Apply for the Steacie Prize
The Steacie Prize is a Canadian award of $10,000 presented once a year to a scientist or engineer of 40 years of age or less for outstanding scientific research carried out in Canada. The winner is selected by a distinguished panel which is appointed annually by the E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fund, a private foundation dedicated to the advancement of science and engineering in Canada. Nominations of candidates should be made by a colleague, and should include a description and evaluation of the nominee’s work, together with a curriculum vitae, a publication list, and a list of referees.
Winners are invited to deliver a lecture about their research work at the Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences in Ottawa. Please see Lecture for details.
The deadline for receipt of nominations is June 30th.
Candidates for the prize are nominated by their colleagues. Nomination packages longer than 25 pages (single-sided) may be edited for brevity. The nominations should contain:
(i) a nomination letter explaining why the candidate should be considered for the prize, and giving the candidate's birth date,
(ii) a curriculum vitae with publication list, and
(iii) a list of names and addresses of 5 or 6 independent referees with recognized expertise in the candidate’s field.
