Supporting science

Awards and opportunities

The Academy awards honorific medals, conference funding and research and lecture grants to champion, celebrate and support excellence in Australian science, promote international scientific engagement and to build public awareness and understanding of science.

National Committees for Science

The Academy has 22 National Committees for Science that are widely representative of its disciplines. The broad aims of the committees are to foster a designated branch or theme of natural science in Australia and to serve as links between Australian and overseas scientists in the same field.
