When we think of prestigious scientific awards, the Nobel Prize is the one that probably comes to mind most for those of us in the United States. However, every year people from all over the world are recognized locally and regionally for their outstanding research achievements and impact. Furthermore, awards are offered at many levels.

This exhibit showcases scientists who have won a variety of awards in the past year, including the Nigerian Science Award, the La Academia Nacional de Ciencias Hermann Burmeister Award from Argentine National Academy of Science, the Kwame Nkrumah Regional Award, the Elsevier Foundation Award-Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World, and a science award specifically aimed at women scientists, sponsored by the L'Oréal Foundation and UNESCO.


This event is free and open to the public. Accommodations for people with disabilities will be provided if requested in advance by calling 541-346-3056, or email libadmin@uoregon.edu.
