UNESCO MAB Young Scientists Awards: helping young people help the planet

Since 1989 MAB has been providing 10 young researchers each year with awards of up to US$ 5,000 in support of their research on ecosystems, natural resources and biodiversity. Through the MAB Young Scientists Awards, MAB is investing in a new generation of scientists worldwide because we think well-trained and committed young people are key to addressing ecological and sustainability issues.

The deadline for submission of application forms for the 2017 MAB Young Scientists Awards is 31 October 2016.
