Non-winning nominees from prior Blavatnik Awards nomination cycles are eligible to be re-nominated by their institutions as one of their three nominees for the 2019 Awards, provided they still meet all eligibility requirements.
Nominating institutions are encouraged to consider candidates across the institution, focusing on the scope of the candidate’s work and its relevance within a given scientific category. For example, an institution can nominate a Chemistry nominee who is not based in the Chemistry Department but is leading a research program in one of the disciplinary categories covered by the Chemistry section of the Blavatnik Awards. Nominating institutions seeking more guidance may contact the Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Institutional nominations must be submitted by the institution’s President (or equivalent), Provost, or their official designee. If the identity of the 2019 designated nominator has changed since 2018, institutions must send a brief statement to email@example.com naming their official designee as nominator before submitting nominations.
Self-nominations are not allowed. Nominees do not submit their own nomination materials and should direct all questions to their institution’s official nominator. If you do not know who this is, please see our Invited Institutions page on which institutional contacts are listed, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
