Rising Star of the Year Award

The SGX3 Rising Star of the Year award acknowledges Rising Stars for notable achievement in the advancement of science gateways. Rising Star of the Year applicants (or those being nominated for Rising Star of the Year) must be either an enrolled student or a professional. Individuals from all disciplinary areas are welcome to apply. 

Selected Rising Star of the Year individuals will receive an honorarium of $500 and a certificate. Rising Star of the Year recipients will be announced at the annual Gateways conference, and applicants are encouraged to attend. You will be asked to submit a travel support request form at a later date. 

If you are chosen to represent SGX3 as “Rising Star of the Year,” you will be designated as a representative and may be asked to participate in a variety of outreach or community events. 

We also recommend that you notify your employer’s Public Relations contact before you apply to ensure that you follow any company policies or guidelines on external programs. If selected, you will also be required to provide a photo, photo release form, and contact information for your employer or university Public Relations department.
