Vilcek Prizes for Creative Promise
The Vilcek Prizes for Creative Promise were established in 2009 as a complement to the Vilcek Prizes, to encourage and support young immigrants who have already demonstrated exceptional achievements and who often face significant challenges early in their careers. As with the Vilcek Prizes, the Creative Promise Prizes are awarded annually in biomedical science and in a changing category of the arts, this year recognizing accomplishments in the field of design.
The online applications are currently open for the 2014 Creative Promise Prizes in Biomedical Science and Design. Three $35,000 cash prizes will be awarded in each category. Apply or recommend your friends and colleagues!
