Calling women in STEM: entries for the first ever Nova Prizes are now open

Tag the biggest overachiever you know


The Nova Prize is a set of six annual awards bestowed in several categories by a panel of world-renowned academics and business leaders, in recognition of female students who have made outstanding early contributions to STEM.

A £1,000 prize will be awarded to a winner in each of the following six fields: physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, engineering and technology.

This year, The Nova Prize is supported and sponsored by The Tab and EY.

How are the winners chosen?

Selected from the entries we receive, five nominees for each category will be announced across The Tab’s network on 9th October 2018. This list of nominees will then be put in front of our expert panel, who will choose the winner for each category. The prizes will be awarded by the panel at a special event on 7th November 2018, and the winners will be publicly announced shortly afterwards.
