The Innovation in Science Literacy Award (ISLA 2017) will reward creative ways in which international development programmes or individual projects have succeeded in addressing a local challenge in a disadvantaged community with a measurable and sustainable increase in science literacy. Applications from all disciplines are invited but preference will be given to those projects which have focused on traditionally non-dominant members of society including women, minorities and the very poor. The recipient of the Innovation in Science Literacy Award 2017 will receive £5,000 (five thousand pounds sterling).
Submission of applications for ISLA 2017 has now closed.
ISLA is funded and administered by the Hardie Wren Development Initiatives (HWDI), a new NGO, and facilitated in collaboration with NIDA.
