Turkish Academy of Sciences Academy Prizes


Nominations are now being sought for The Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA) Academy Prizes.

The TÜBA Academy Prizes were launched in 2015 in appreciation and encouragement of eminent scientists. TÜBA Academy Prizes are annually awarded to three nominated scientists in each of the following categories:

1) Basic and Engineering sciences

2) Health and Life sciences

3) Social Sciences and Humanities

Prizes are awarded to scientists with Turkish connections, meaning those who work in Turkey and/or study Turkey.

TÜBA Academy Prizes are given to those scientists with originalleading and path-breaking works in their fields. Nominations are made by TÜBA members, academies and inter-academy organizations with which TÜBA is in cooperation and other science institutions and scientists invited as nominators. Members of TÜBA and those who take part in the evaluation process of the prizes cannot be nominated.

The nominees are evaluated by a Prize Committee in each category. The Committees, composed of TÜBA members and renowned scientists, examine the works of the candidates via a rigorous process involving peer-review and identify the possible prize laureates. The laureates are announced by the Academy Council of TÜBA. The Academy Prizes, comprising an Academy Medal and prize money of US$ 30,000, are awarded in a special ceremony. The Prize Ceremony is held under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Turkey.

TÜBA is a member of the ISSC.
