Sixth ASEAN-US Science Prize for Women Focuses on Preventive Healthcare

On November 22, 2019, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the U.S. Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with Underwriters Laboratories (UL), launched the call for application of the sixth annual ASEAN-U.S. Science Prize for Women.

The 2020 Science Prize for Women will focus on ‘’Preventive Healthcare’’ as its theme this year and award two female scientists from the ASEAN region. The ASEAN Committee on Science, Technology and Innovation (COSTI) will lead the selection committee and present a $20,000 award to the selected participant who demonstrates the best application of original scientific research to this year’s theme. A second prize of $5,000 will be given to a scientist whose application merits an honorable mention. The top two finalists will be recognised at the ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Science, Technology, and Innovation in Bangkok, in October 2020.
