Please help the Marconi Society identify outstanding Young Scholars.
The Marconi Society was established in 1974 to honor Guglielmo Marconi, the Nobel laureate who invented radio (wireless telegraphy). Along with the annual Marconi Prize to a living scientist or scientists whose contributions in the field of information and communications science have benefited mankind, the Society recognizes young scientists and engineers with the potential to make extraordinary contributions in this field. We are now seeking nominations for the 2016 Paul Baran Young Scholar Awards, which will be presented November 2, 2016 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. Young Scholars receive a $4000 cash prize plus $1000 in expenses to attend the event. This is an opportunity for them to gain well-deserved recognition, and meet and network with some of the industry’s best-known scientists and engineers.
Young Scholars are identified as having the potential to someday become Marconi Prize winners; scientists whose work underlies virtually every major advance in telecommunications and the Internet. Young Scholars selected since the program’s inception in 2009 already have founded successful companies, participated in major research projects, and joined the faculty of some of the world’s top universities.
If you know a student who has demonstrated outstanding research capability, entrepreneurial spirit and technical vision, we invite you to nominate them for this year’s award. Only candidates born in 1988 or later are eligible for the award in 2016. Complete nomination instructions and the online application are accessible through this link:
The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2016. If you have questions, please direct them to:
