Awards medal

Central to the purpose of the Academy is the recognition and support of outstanding contributions to the advancement of science. The honorific awards were established to recognise distinguished research in three categories: awards of medals and prizes are made to Early-Career scientists up to 10 years post PhD, Mid-Career scientists 8 to 15 years post PhD, and the prestigious Career awards which are made to scientists for life-long achievement.

The Academy supports research through the sponsorship of research conferences that focus on rapidly developing fields of research; the awarding of travelling fellowships for the exchange of scientific ideas; and provides research awards in fields such as the conservation of endangered Australian vertebrate species, the history of science, population and environment, marine, soil and plant biology.

Application and nominations for the 2017 round will open in February 2016.
