PAESMEM awardees receive a $10,000 honorary Presidential award and are invited to participate in recognition events and meetings with STEM policy leaders in Washington, D.C.
Nominations, including self-nominations, are invited for individuals and organizations that have demonstrated at least five years of excellence in mentoring students, trainees, and/or early career scientists and engineers from groups that are underrepresented in STEM, including women, people with disabilities, underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, as well as individuals from low socio-economic backgrounds and some geographic regions (such as urban and rural regions).
Individuals who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and U.S. organizations in industry, academia, primary and secondary education, military and government, non-profit organizations, and foundations are eligible for the award.
