NIH Recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE)
The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) was commissioned by President Clinton in 1996 to create an award program that would honor and support the extraordinary achievements of the finest scientists and engineers who, while early in their research careers, show exceptional potential for leadership at the frontiers of scientific knowledge during the twenty-first century. The Presidential Award is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers.
The Awards embody the high priority placed by the government on maintaining the leadership position of the United States in science by producing outstanding scientists and engineers who will broadly advance science and the missions important to the participating agencies. The Awards support the continued development of the awardees, foster innovative and far-reaching developments in science and technology, increase awareness of careers in science and engineering, give recognition to the scientific missions of participating agencies, enhance connections between fundamental research and national goals, and highlight the importance of science and technology for the nation's future.To be eligible for a Presidential Award, an individual must be a U.S. citizen, national or permanent resident. After receiving recommendations from participating federal agencies, the White House will confer the awards each year. Each Presidential Award will be of five years duration. Selection criteria and processes are dependent upon the agency.
The participating agencies are:
