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).
Applications for ISLA 2017 must be submitted via an online submission process no later than 30th June 2017.
ISLA is funded and administered by the Hardie Wren Development Initiatives (HWDI), a new NGO, and facilitated in collaboration with NIDA.
