For young scientists from developing countries
The ICTP Prize was created in 1982 by the ICTP Scientific Council to recognize outstanding and original contributions in physics by young scientists from, and working in, developing countries. The ICTP Prize includes a sculpture, certificate and a cash award.
What to provide the selection committee
Anybody can nominate a candidate for the ICTP Prize. In order for a candidate to be considered, ICTP needs the following essential information:
- Candidate's up-to-date curriculum vitae, including birthplace and date, nationality, education, main positions held including present placement and duties, and major honours and awards. Candidates must have obtained their PhD less than 12 years earlier, specifically after 31 December 2011 for the 2023 prize (or after 31 December 2010 for women with one child; after 31 December 2009 for women with two children);
- Brief description of scientific achievements and proposed citation;
- Two letters of recommendation.
It would greatly help the selection work, and make it more accurate, if you could provide us with additional information on:
1) Names of additional potential referees or nominators
2) Current phone and email address
3) List of significant publications
Self nominations are not acceptable.
Please submit your nomination by 30 September 2023 via ICTP's online application system.
