Recognizing, Rewarding and Inspiring Young Scholars
Most scientists today agree that basic research is not being supported as it should be. Long relied-upon funding sources for basic research are increasingly focused on shorter-term payoffs, and are being cut back even as needs and opportunities accelerate. The Marconi Society can make a difference by strongly advocating for more public and private investment in science education and research and by becoming a source of mentorship and encouragement for top students in the field.
In 2008, with a generous donation from 2007 Marconi Fellow Professor Ron Rivest, we created and launched the Young Scholars Award, selecting four scholars at U.S. universities to receive financial stipends and travel funds to attend our annual Awards Gala and to connect with some of the most sought-after mentors in the world, Marconi Fellows. Young Scholars make a commitment to remain involved in our organization, to attend future events, and to help us reach out and motivate other exceptional young scholars.
