Applicants are to submit a 1000-word essay that is judged by an independent editorial team organized by the journal Science. Essays are judged on the quality of research and the applicants’ ability to articulate how their work would contribute to the scientific field.

Eligible entrants must have been awarded their doctoral degree in 2018 or 2019. The winners from each category will compete for the Grand Prize. The Grand Prize winner will receive 30,000 USD and be published in Science magazine. The three remaining category winners will receive 10,000 USD each and be published in Science online.
