Prizes are awarded to top African scientists working in Life and Earth Science and Basic Science, Technology and Innovation. The Continental Award is open to all African scientists and is the highest level of the programme. Two winners will each receive USD 100,000 during the Heads of States and Government Summit in January 2017. The Regional Award implemented in partnership with the Regional Economic Communities (REC) aims at promoting the participation of African women in STI. Two winners per region will each receive a prize of USD 20,000. The National Young Scientists Award is implemented by Member States who have signed an agreement with the AUC and its implementation partner, the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS). This award is intended for scientists aged not more than forty years by 31 December. Two winners per country will receive a prize of USD 2,000 each. [Image credit: ghanaschools.org]
