3rd Annual Rising Black Scientists Awards
Cell Press is excited to announce that this year’s Rising Black Scientists Award essay competition will expand beyond the life sciences to include all scientific disciplines published by Cell Press (life, health, Earth and environmental, data, and physical sciences). In partnership with Cell Signaling Technology and the Elsevier Foundation, the goal is to support talented and motivated young Black scientists on their journey. The award is meant to break down barriers and create opportunities by providing funds to support professional development. Four awardees — two undergraduate students and two graduate students/postdoctoral scholars — will be recognized. Four honorable mentions — two undergraduate students and two graduate students/postdoctoral scholars — will also be recognized. We encourage submissions from any Black aspiring scientists or active researchers at American institutions within the U.S.
The application deadline is November 11, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
