The scheme was launched in 1993 for young
scientists and scholars in Russia, and now
applies to young scholars from across the
\\ \\
Past sponsors include: The International
Science Foundation, New York (Soros);
Amersham International, UK; the Rayne
Foundation, London; and the Danish Physical
Society. In previous years additional sponsors
have been the Robert Koch Microbiological
Society, Heidelberg; and Mr T Mann of
Cleveland. Current sponsors include: MAIKINTERPERIODIKA
\\ \\
The award consists of a medal, a certificate
and a monetary award currently some
US$1000. These prizes are given at a
dedicated ceremony in Moscow.
\\ \\
Prizes are awarded in Mathematics, Physics,
Chemistry, Biology, Earth Sciences, Medicine
and the Humanities.
\\ \\
The scheme is supervised by a committee of
Russian members of the Academia Europaea,
and has been chaired since the start by
Professor Vladimir Skulachev. Information
about the scheme is advertised in appropriate
newspapers and in universities. Initial
proposals are sifted by the committee and
the best are sent to international experts
for assessment. About 25 prize winners are
selected each year.
