  • If the nominee is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, they must be studying or working at an institution that is located outside of the U.S.; if a non-U.S. citizen or permanent resident, they must be studying or working at an institution that is located in the U.S.
  • Nominees must be active in research at the time the award is given.
  • Nominees must be a postdoctoral fellow, research associate and/or advanced graduate student at the time of the nomination or have ended this stage in their career in the immediate past calendar year.
