ClosedAward Closed: 8th of February 2024 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $50,000 Run By: Australian Government Department of Industry, Science and Resources Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=41610ed7-718f-4eb6-9c3e-8cb846d1f596

The Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science are Australia’s most prestigious and highly regarded awards for achievements in scientific research, research-based innovation and excellence in science teaching.

The Prime Minister’s Prizes for Excellence in Science Teaching in Primary and Secondary Schools are awarded for excellence in teaching in any area of science that is part of the nominated teacher’s state or territory, science, mathematics or technology syllabus.

Each prize is awarded to one individual teacher who, through the impact of their teaching and the sharing of their methods and results with the science teaching profession, has made an contribution to science, mathematics or technology education. Recipients of these awards are role models for those already teaching science and those considering a science teaching career. Nomination itself is recognition of these qualities by peers.

Each Science Teaching Prize includes a medallion, lapel pin, award certificate and $50,000 in prize money.

We may recognise highly ranked nominees through the awarding of highly commended certificates.

They strongly encourage nominations of diverse candidates, including those from a different range of backgrounds and geographical regions.

There are two prises for science teaching under this awards program:

  • Prime Minister’s Prize for Excellence in Science Teaching in Primary Schools
  • Prime Minister’s Prize for Excellence in Science Teaching in Secondary Schools
