2015 CUNY Nobel Science Challenge

CUNY undergraduate students are invited to describe, in 1000 - 1500 words, the scientific concepts behind the work for which one of the 2015 Nobel winners received their respective prize and the present and future significance of the research to humanity.

Starting this year, essays will be judged using a two-stage process. Essays in each category (Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, and Economics) will be reviewed by a committee of distinguished CUNY faculty.  The essays must make the science accessible to the lay person.

Each judging committee will select the top six (6) essays. Next, finalists in each category will be invited to an in-person review/discussion with the faculty panel. The judges will then select the top three (3) winning essays; the non-winning essays will receive Honorable Mentions. At the judges’ discretion, an additional prize may be awarded to the best essay submitted overall.

Deadline is December 7, 2015
