Recognition

Central to the purpose of the Academy is the recognition and support of outstanding contributions to the advancement of science. In addition to the awards listed below, we maintain a list of external sources of recognition.

Academy Medal

The Academy Medal recognises outstanding contributions to science by means other than through scientific research. It is awarded to a person outside the Fellowship who has, by sustained efforts in the public domain, significantly advanced the cause of science and technology in Australia or who has made a substantial contribution to the Academy.

Honorific awards

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.
