The Young Scientist Prize is granted by IUPAP Commissions. Successful candidates will have up to 8 years of research experience following Ph.D. (excluding career interruptions). Each commission can give up to three awards over three years (these can be one per year or all three awarded together). The award consists of a certificate, medal and a monetary award. A presentation will take place at an international conference sponsored through the commission.
