Shah Family Innovation Prize

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute is currently soliciting
nominations for the 2000 Shah Family Innovation Prize, rewarding young
professionals and academics for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial
spirit in the field of earthquake risk mitigation and management. The prize
was created with a substantial gift to the EERI Endowment Fund by the
Haresh Shah family of Stanford, California. The $10,000 prize honors
individuals less than 35 years old who have demonstrated at early stages in
their careers the potential to make major contributions to the field of
earthquake risk mitigation and management.

Nominations are due October 15, 2000 at the EERI office. (Candidates for
the 2000 prize must be less than 35 years of age on January 1, 2001.)  A
one page nomination statement is required, written by the nominator,
summarizing accomplishments and background of the individual. In addition,
nominators should submit the names and contact information for two
references. Candidates do not need to be EERI members.  Past recipients
include Bret Lizundia of Rutherford and Chekene, and Nicos Makris of the
University of California, Berkeley. A more detailed brochure describing the
selection criteria and nomination process is available from the EERI
office.  Contact Marjorie Greene at mgreene(--nospam--at)eeri.org if you have questions
or wish more information.
