The Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science celebrate exceptional support and mentorship in science, recognizing individuals who have significantly contributed to the career development of early career researchers. This year, the focus is on mentors in West Africa, as defined by the UN. Former mentees are invited to nominate mentors who have played a pivotal role in their careers.

Award Categories:
1. Lifetime Achievement in Mentoring: Open to individuals who received their PhD or Medical Doctorate before 1995.
2. Mid-Career Achievement: Open to individuals who received their PhD or Medical Doctorate in or after 1995.

Each award includes a cash prize of US$10,000, which will be shared in case of joint winners in any category.

Nomination Process:
– Nominees may be nominated by colleagues, ex-colleagues, or themselves.
– Nominations must include independent testimonials by five researchers mentored by the nominee, not all over the same period.
– Nominations will only be accepted as one complete package, including:
