The Gruber Foundation invites nominations on behalf of individuals whose achievements in Cosmology, Genetics, or Neuroscience would make them suitable candidates for recognition through the 2020 Gruber International Prize Program. Each prize, which is accompanied by a $500,000 unrestricted monetary award, is designed both to recognize groundbreaking work in each field and to inspire additional efforts that effect fundamental shifts in knowledge and culture. Recipients are selected by a committee of distinguished experts in each field. We encourage nominations that reflect the breadth of the fields and the diversity of those working within them.

Nomination forms for each field can be completed and submitted online. The deadline for nominations is 15 December 2019.

The Cosmology Prize honors a leading cosmologist, astronomer, astrophysicist, or scientific philosopher for theoretical, analytical, conceptual, or observational discoveries leading to fundamental advances in our understanding of the universe.

Since 2001, the Cosmology Prize has been cosponsored by the International Astronomical Union.

Further information on the Foundation and the individual Prizes is available available on the Gruber Foundation webpage.
