 The Mahathir Science Award Foundation (MSAF) is pleased to invite nominations for the 2022 Mahathir Science Award.

The Mahathir Science Award recognises the best contributions and innovations towards solving problems of the tropics through science and technology in four categories of tropical science, namely:

  2. Tropical Architecture and Engineering
  3. Tropical Medicine
  4. Tropical Natural Resources

From among the four categories, two categories are contested yearly. Nominees can be individuals, groups of no more than three individuals, or organisations.

The selection of the award winner is based on the originality of the work, and its impact and significance in solving the problems of the tropics by improving the quality of life and contributing to the region’s prosperity.

The MSAF is pleased to announce that the Call for Nominations for the 2022 Mahathir Science Award is now open for the Tropical Medicine and Tropical Natural Resources categories.

The recipient of the 2022 Mahathir Science Award will receive a prize of USD100, 000, a gold medal and a certificate. In receiving the award, the winner will also cooperate with MSAF to promote the tropical sciences through engagement sessions.

The nominees will be assessed based on the materials provided by nominators and the details provided in the nomination form.
