Marconi Society Young Scholar Nominations Open

I often say that the Young Scholars and their amazing work – from their research to their influence in industry, academia and technology to their social impact through the Celestini Program – are among the Marconi Society’s finest contributions to the field. Each year’s nominees make me hopeful about the future of our profession and our world.
In 2019, we will celebrate the Marconi Prize winner on May 16 and 17 (mark your calendars!) and we will select the 2019 Young Scholars commensurately earlier so that they can be an integral part of our festivities and learning opportunities, as they always are.
We continue to seek a diverse group of young researchers who have the potential to change our connected world through their discoveries. Our committee of distinguished scientists evaluates nominees on their technical expertise, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. Winners become part of a life-long cohort of Young Scholars and Marconi Fellows and receive international recognition for their work, along with a $5000 honorarium.
We will accept nominations through February 15. Please consider your best and brightest students and colleagues for this honor that builds careers and helps form lifelong professional and personal relationships.
