The Weizmann Women & Science Award has been established to honor an outstanding woman scientist in the United States who has made a major contribution in science, techonology or engineering. The objective of the biennial award is to advance the cause of women in science and to provide a role model to motivate and encourage the next generation of young women scientists. The recipient may come from any discipline across the natural sciences and technology (e.g. biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, environmental science) and can be engaged in either basic or applied research in the United States. A stipulation of receiving the biennial award is that the recipient be available to participate in an award ceremony in New York. She may also be requested to speak or be a special guest at a future Women & Science event. The recipient will be given a $25,000 research grant to the project of her choice and will be sponsored for a trip to visit the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel.
