It is our pleasure to inform you that a member of the Academy of Young Scholars and Artists, Ms Małgorzata Zakrzewska, PhD, normally associated with the University of Wrocław is the finalist of the 14th edition of Scientific Awards of POLITYKA in the “Life Sciences” category.

Fifteen young scientists were selected to the 1st stage by the Chapter composed of the representatives of scientific circles, senior colleagues – professors.

We are awaiting the second stage. As we can read in POLITYKA – Scientific excellence is not enough – outstanding achievements have to reach social awareness, and their authors should be important participants of public debate. For that reason in the second stage of the competition the Social Chapter will set to work, it is not composed of scholars but persons playing important roles in the public space.

In September the decision about the winning five will be made. The winners will receive one-off scholarships of PLN 30 thousand.

All other finalists will receive a grant of PLN 10 thousand.
