Happy Birthday Albert Einstein!
In honor of this special day, we are proud to announce the first annual Einsteinium Awards!
Scientific research is a long-term investment in our future, and the future of our planet. Funding around the world has fallen dramatically in recent years and we hope to play a small part in reversing that trend.
Open registration shall commence on May 15th, 2018 and end on August 15, 2018. The winner will be announced in mid-late September 2018. The official date of the awards ceremony is still to be determined, but shall take place in Los Angeles, California.
Applicants must be from a university or graduate studies program. Students and professors from all over the world are welcome to apply.
There will be an entry fee of 25 EMC2. This fee is designed to ensure that all applications are legitimate. 100% of these fees shall be awarded to prize recipients in addition to the Foundation's contribution.
Once all the submissions have been received, the EMC2 community will vote to select a winner. Anyone is allowed to vote by registering to the Awards contest website (coming soon) and paying a fee of 1 EMC2 to authenticate the voter as a valid EMC2 holder and to restrict multiple votes.
The prize for this year's award will be 100,000 EMC2 to be given as a grant to the most worthy scientific project.
Please check back closer to May 15th for registration and submission instructions. We look forward to hearing all of your great ideas for driving us forward into the future!
