John Kendrew Fund
With the John Kendrew Award (JKA), the EMBL Alumni Association (EAA) aims to offer a prize that is highly regarded among the European scientific community in order to help young scientists gain early recognition and opportunities in pursuing ambitious and challenging career paths.
The award aims to foster and support young scientists by recognising and rewarding excellence in research and science communication. It is open to former EMBL pre- and postdocs, and is granted entirely on merit, irrespective of field or affiliation to any discipline.
For the period 2008-2010 the JKA, which costs €2,000 annually, was generously funded by the EMBL Pensioners' Association, who began the whole initiative thanks to the efforts of Konrad Müller. For the current decade 2011-2020 it is being generously funded by Roland Specker. The EAA would like to use this time to raise enough money to offer the award indefinitely: this means raising €10,000 per year for the next ten years until 2020.
There is no such thing as too small a gift and any amount is highly appreciated and acknowledged.
We are confident that with your help we can secure this award, and thank you for your support.
