Nature Award for Mentoring in Science 2024

Celebrating outstanding support and mentorship in science, , the Nature Award for Mentoring in Science recognize those who support early career researchers in their career development. Focused on a different country or region each year, this year’s award focuses on mentors in West Africa (as defined by the UN), and invites former mentees to nominate a mentor that has made a significant contribution to their careers.

The Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science is made up of two categories:

  1. The award for lifetime achievement in mentoring is open to individuals who were awarded their PhD or Medical Doctorate before 1995.
  2. The award for mid-career achievement is open to individuals who were awarded their PhD or Medical Doctorate in or after 1995.


  • Each award comes with a cash prize of US$10,000 (which will be shared in case there are joint winners in any category).
